Sending of the first message via Morse code
On 24th May 1844, Samuel Morse tested a message transmission from Washington to Baltimore at a distance of about 60 km. It was a biblical text “What Hath God Wrought”.
The successful transmission of this message became a turning point in communication systems around the globe. Samuel Morse invented the codes of printed dots and dashes as the means to transmit messages using his telegraph system.
