This inventor gave us the famous Morse Code
American inventor Samuel (Finley Breese) Morse was born on April 27, 1791, in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Aside from being an inventor, he was also an artist. From 1832, Morse experimented on a practical system of using electricity to send messages by telegraphy. He developed the Morse Code to simplify the system. In 1844, Morse sent the message "What God hath wrought?" from Washington to Baltimore. He collaborated with Cyrus Field in laying the first transatlantic cable.
