(Worldkings.org) On this day in 1838, Samuel Morse's telegraph system is demonstrated for the first time at the Speedwell Iron Works in Morristown, New Jersey. The telegraph, a device which used electric impulses to transmit encoded messages over a wire, would eventually revolutionise long-distance communication, reaching the height of its popularity in the 1920s and 1930s. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was born 27 April 1791, in Charlestown, Massachusetts.
