Starting with the fundamental scientific discoveries of Benjamin Franklin, Luigi Galvani, Alessandro Volta, Hans Christian Oersted, and Michael Faraday, the attention quickly follows to the technologists like William Stanley, George Westinghouse, and Thomas Edison who helped rapidly electrify the coal-fired and gas-lit late 19th century.

On the other hand, since back in 1850 electricity had already been connected to magnetism--as in the discovery of electro-magnetism by Hans Oersted in 1820--, Brownson here simply correlated the two phenomena.
