Today we honored Morse Code Day with…

* I was born April 27, 1791 in Charlestown, Massachusetts
* I attended Yale to study religion, math and equine science
* I supported myself by painting and was commissioned to paint several prominent portraits
* I developed the concept of the single-wire telegraph
* My code became the primary language of telegraphs
* I received Congressional funding in 1843 to build the first telegraphic line
* My first message was, “What hath God wrought?”

I am…Samuel Morse!
