Dynamite was invented in Northern Germany in 1867. It was first used to make the bomb in 1870 and later used in cannons in the Spanish-American war.
Before dynamite was invented, black powder was used in construction and in mining for blasting rock but its power was not strong enough.
Alfred Berhard Nobel invented dynamite. It was made of nitroglycerin, sorbents and stabilizers
Dynamite made demolition and mining jobs faster and easier. This led to expansion of roads, tunnels, canals, railroads & cities and created more efficient trading which helped the economy.
Dynamite is still used today in construction, mining and demolition. It's considered a high-explosive so it's now used for a bottom charge or for underwater blasting.
