Telephones Stopped Working In Canada and the USA

On March 7, 1876, Patent №174,465 was issued to Alexander Graham Bell for the telephone and secured him the rights to the discovery.

To mark his moment of burial On August 4th, 1922, phones throughout Canada and America went silent for a minute.

The information above was gleaned from the Library Of Congress website. A site where I find source material to create articles I publish.
