English inventor and engineer Sir Henry Bessemer (1813 - 1898), who invented a cheap process for manufacturing steel from pig-iron by blowing air through it, and established a steelworks at Sheffield in 1859, specialising in the manufacture of guns and, later, steel rails.

1856- Trying to find a way to produce heavy guns for Britain during the Crimean War, Henry Bessemer tries blowing air over pig iron to see what happens.  It gets so hot that it produces steel in a way that can be industrialized at a large scale for the first time.  From this point on, bridges, railroads, & ships can all be built cheaper, faster, & stronger than ever before, & buildings can be built at heights previously impossible.

1854  Henry Bessemer found a way to convert iron into steel, which was both stronger and lighter than iron. This made it possible to build huge structures such as bridges and ships.
