Samuel Morse sends "What hath God wrought" message

24 May, 1844

Samuel Morse inaugurated the first telegraph line by sending the message “What hath God wrought” on 24th May 1844. The line is a biblical quotation Number 23:23. The message was sent from the Old Supreme Court Chamber in the US Capitol. Morse’s assistant, Alfred Vail, in Baltimore, Maryland, received the message.

The two had invented the system of dots and dashes for communication over telegraph.
