We also need to mention in our group.
(Samuel Finley Breese Morse birthday 27 April 1791)
Morse Code Day is to commemorate the birthday of Samuel Morse, co-developer of Morse code. He was an American painter and contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He invented the telegraph as a means of rapid long-distance communication as he was unable to see his dead wife due to the slow connection. In a letter to a friend, Morse explains how vigorously he fought to be called the sole creator of the electromagnetic telegraph despite the previous inventions.On May 24, 1844, Samuel Morse sent the first-ever morse code message to Alfred Vail. The world’s popular message was “What hath God wrought!” which was suggested by Annie Ellsworth. The phrase is taken from the Bible, Numbers 23:23.
