A Brief History of Barbed Wire

In 1863 by Michael Kelly developed a type of fence with points affixed to twisted strands of wire. 
Had his invention been properly promoted, he could have gained distinction as the Father of
Barbed Wire. It wasn't until ten years later that another inventor filed a patent that would spark
the development of the barbed wire industry.

2.At the county fair in DeKalb, Illinois in 1873, Henry M. Rose had on exhibit a new idea in fencing.
It was a wooden rail with a series of sharp spikes protruding from the sides of the rail. The fence
rail, patented earlier that year on May 13, was designed to be attached to an existing fence to "prick"
an animal when it came into contact with the rail and keep livestock from breaking through.

3.Barbs were placed on one of two parallel strands of wire. The two strands of wire were attached
to a hook on the side of an old grinding wheel. As the barbs were positioned, the wheel was turned
twisting the two strands of wire and locking the barbs in place.
