Samuel Morse Developed the Telegraph Because of a Personal Tragedy
FOREIGN CONSPIRACY AGAINST The LIBERTIES Of The UNITED STATES by Samuel Morse (April 27,1791 - April 2,1872) Inventor of the TELEGRAPH -- (excerpts from the book📖)
Samuel Finley Breese Morse (April 27, 1791 – April 2, 1872) was an American inventor. He contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs, was a co-inventor of the Morse code, and also an accomplished painter. Morse additionally supported the institution of slavery as well as anti-Catholic and anti-immigration efforts within the United States.
Samuel Finley Breese Morse (April 27, 1791 – April 2, 1872) was a co-developer of the Morse code, and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.In the 1850s, Morse became well known as a defender of slavery, considering it to be sanctioned by God. In his treatise "An Argument on the Ethical Position of Slavery," he wrote: My creed on the subject of slavery is short. Slavery per se is not sin.

"What God Hath Wrought" Telegraph Message: Printed in Morse code and transcribed by Samuel Morse himself, this message was transmitted from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., over the nation's first long-distance telegraph line.
This is a public gathering in 1835 of a professor from New York University demonstrating exactly how Morse cord worked. He proved that signals could be sent by wire. It was done by him taking electromagnetic waves and deflecting the direction of the signals being traveled. This ended up creating morse code as a way for people to be able to communicate with each other back and forth. Later Congress decided to put 30,000 dollars to fund an experimental telegraph that could go 40 miles.
Samuel Morse opens a telegraph line connecting Washington D.C. and Baltimore. The line officially opened on May 24,1844 when Morse sent the words “What hath God wrought” (a biblical quote from the Book of Numbers)
