Samuel Morse transmitted the first message via telegraph in the United States sent 
from Washington to Baltimore, "What hath God Wrought!”, a Bible verse found in 
Numbers 23:23. According to the Library of Congress, the message was suggested 
by Annie Ellsworth, the daughter of one of Morse’s friends. By 1846, telegraph lines  
were erected, connecting major eastern and northern cities.
