From the Paper:

"Since the time that Samuel Morse perfected the use of the telegraph in North America, its profound effect on the geography of the area had begun. Morse was tied to geography at an early age through the work of his father, Jedidiah Morse. The elder Morse was as well known for his work in the subject as was Noah Webster with the dictionary (Mabee). At this time in history, messages could only travel as fast as could be delivered, whether on foot or on horseback. This means that before the telegraph, communication and transportation could not be separated (Cztirom)."
