In 1858, the first successful messages were sent over a transatlantic cable which spanned Valentia, Ireland to Heart’s Content, Newfoundland. After some tests, in August of 1858, Queen Victoria of England, and President Buchanan of the United States exchanged congratulations. In September of 1858, the cable stopped working.
