Morse Code is a language that uses dots and dashes to communicate words using signals. It has been in constant use since January 11, 1838 when it was first demonstrated by Alfred Vail and Samuel Morse, its creators. Though it is not as used today as it has been in the past, it is still an interesting thing to know. This holiday doesn't require you to learn the entire language, just the letters in your name! It can be a great way to teach yourself or your kids about one of the most important inventions in transportation!
