The day the inventor of Morse Code was born – level 3
Samuel Morse was born on April 27, 1791, in Massachusetts, which was then a part of the British colony.
He became a successful painter before turning his attention to developing the telegraph and Morse Code.
Morse, together with his colleague, created a system of dots and dashes that represented the letters of the alphabet.
Morse received the first patent for the telegraph in 1837 and demonstrated the system for the first time in 1844 by sending a message from Washington D.C. to Baltimore over a distance of 60 km.
The development of the telegraph and Morse Code revolutionized communication, making it possible to send messages quickly and efficiently over long distances.
One of the most iconic phrases in Morse code is the distress signal, SOS.
Difficult words: dash (a small short line),), distress (a situation in which a person is in danger).
