On 24 May 1844, Samuel Morse transmitted the message "What hath God wrought" from Baltimore to Alfred Vail in Washington, D.C., using America's first completed long-distance telegraph line. Morse and Vail had first successfully demonstrated their electric telegraph, over a shorter distance, in 1838.
