This is the story of how a man with a dream connected two countries together

                   This map shows America and Britain connected by the Transatlantic Cable, artist unknown, A Thread Across the Ocean

The Transatlantic cable connected America to England in 1858, and allowed the two countries to communicate smoothly by sending telegrams. Since this cable could almost instantly send telegraphs, many problems were solved including aiding America’s expansion and boosting the economy.
