The spirit of invention pervaded 19th century America. From Fulton's steamboat to factory assembly lines to Edison's motion picture machine, Americans marvelled at the new technologies. This volume highlights many of the masterminds of the century and includes excerpts from primary source documents relating to their inventions, including Colt, Morse, Deere, Armour, Bell, Edison, Westinghouse, Ford, Pullman, and several women and African Americans whose contributions are often not well recognized.
