Samuel F. B. Morse

This is a nice portrait of Samuel F. B. Morse. He is remembered as the inventor of the telegraph. It was on this day (May 24th) in 1844 that the first telegram was sent. It was sent by Morris, in Baltimore, to a colleague in Washington D.C. The message read, "What hath God Wrought"

  1. Mr PJM,
    Have you any knowledge of the different medals Mr. Morse is wearing in this photo? Were they given for inventing the telegram?
