Overview

Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, right? That's what most people will tell you. But what if they're wrong? What if Scottish-born inventor Antonio Santi Giuseppe Meucci was working on his own telephone invention at the exact same time? You'll be on the edge of your seat as Meucci and Bell race to win the battle of the telephone. Who will overcome the obstacles and be the first to cross the finish line? You'll never look at a telephone the same way again!
