“ORT HUACHUCA, Ariz. (April 27, 2015) — It is the end of an era on Fort Huachuca. For National Morse Code Day, the last manual Morse code class began here, April 24. In the future, the course will be taught by the Air Force on Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas.
National Morse Code Day is celebrated on what would have been its founder’s 224th birthday. Samuel F. B. Morse dispatched the first telegraph message in Morse code, May 24, 1844. The message, “What Hath God Wrought?” was dispatched from the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., to Alfred Vail at a railroad station in Baltimore.
The military first used Morse code during the Crimean War. Both the Union and Confederate armies heavily relied on Morse code during the Civil War. President Abraham Lincoln utilized it to receive military intelligence as well as command and control his generals in the field.”
