Where Did Bell Invent the TelephoneEveryone knows Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, but the location of the invention seems to be the matter of some debate.

“The Wisconsin Department of Justice is disappointed that Alec Cook did not receive the much longer sentence the prosecution team recommended, and we still believe that is what Alec Cook deserves.
