Official: Antonio Meucci was the Real Inventor of Telephony

“On the past June 15th, 2002, the US Congress officially recognized that the italian inventor Antonio Meucci is to be credited for the invention of the telephone, and not Alexander G. Bell, as so far claimed…. a poor italian immigrant in New York sold the prototypes of his invention to a Telegraph company, that later gave them to Alexander G. Bell, who in turn patented the invention of the phone.” —Official: Antonio Meucci was the Real Inventor of TelephonyPopular-Science.net)
