Telegraphic Communication

Telegraphic Communication

24 May 1844. Samuel F. B. Morse sent the first message via an experimental telegraphic line from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore. The message, taken from the Bible, Numbers 23:23, and recorded on a paper tape, had been suggested to Morse by Annie Ellsworth, the young daughter of a friend.

As an arts professor at New York University, Morse conceived of a communications system employing the electro-magnet and a series of relays through a network of telegraph stations. In order to transmit via this system, he invented the Morse Code, an alphabet of electronic dashes and dots used to transmit telegraph messages.
