THIS MONTH IN HISTORY

On November 23rd, 1987; Andrew Jackson Beard received the patent for his “Jenny Coupler” invention. The Jenny Coupler is a probe that secures two train cars together by merely bumping them together. The formal name for the piece is the Automatic Railroad Car Coupler. Beard did lose his leg in the process of working on railroads, however, that did not stop him. His invention is the forerunner of today’s automatic coupler.

Beard is also the inventor of two plows and a steam engine, which he invented while he was a farmer. The thousands of dollars he received for his inventions then is equivalent to somewhere in the millions now.

We celebrate Mr. A.J. Beard and his dynamic invention that benefits us all today! Be sure to research him to find out more information.

Enjoy Loves! ❤️
