The enclosing of land with some form of fencing material dates far back into history. Out of the desire for ownership, independence, and safety from intrusion, many different types of enclosures have been developed. The hedgerow, the stone wall, and the rail fence are expressions of these psychological and economic desires. Hence, when the early colonists, bearing with them the inheritances of the past-came to the New World, they began to build enclosures. The nature of these early fences was conditioned largely by the kinds of materials available. In New England, they were built largely of stones, while in the South, they were constructed of rails. These two types of fence construction predominated until the western movement reached the prairies where the supply of stone and timber was insufficient.
This situation resulted in experimentation with a number of other materials. Hedgerows were gradually developed, and a few homesteaders even resorted to mud and ditch enclosures. Timber was brought from neighboring States, but its cost was generally too great for those who lived on the frontier where the increased increment of their land was none too certain. As the line of settlement pushed farther west, the problem of fencing became even more acute. The small farmer found that the cost of fencing increased while the total income from his land diminished. The seriousness of the problem attracted the attention of the Federal Government, and in 1871, an elaborate report was issued by the Department of Agriculture. This report revealed that fencing, even in the most timbered areas, was very costly and that it was almost prohibitive to those who lived on the marginal lands of the western prairies. As a result, the Great Plains were largely left unsettled until certain inventions became available.
In their attempts to find an economical fencing material many of the homesteaders turned to smooth wire which had been developed in the East during the early part of the nineteenth century. Although it was superior and generally cheaper than other materials, it did not meet all the requirements of a prairie fence. The iron wire of that day was affected adversely by extreme temperatures; it snapped in cold weather and sagged in hot. Furthermore, it had no terror for the livestock of the open range; they loosened the posts and broke the wire by constantly rubbing against it. Finally with the hope that animals could be satisfactorily confined within wire fences, men in the West turned to the problem of improving them.
Like many other agricultural inventions, smooth wire with some form of a barb on it has a long history. The early beginnings were in the Eastern States. The first crude patent was taken out by William D. Hunt of Scott County, New York, in 1867; he was followed in the same year by Lucien B. Smith of Ohio, and in the next year by Michael D. Kelly of New York. These three inventors laid the foundations for barbed-wire fencing by furnishing the basic patents, and, though none of their own manufactures ever proved very practical, they did serve to suggest certain improvements and new ideas that soon were to crystallize into a fence adaptable to the Western States.
