Noah Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language
On this day in 1828, 195 years ago, the 1st edition of Noah Webster's "American Dictionary of the English Language" was published. Enslavers, who banned antislavery books at the rate antiracist books are banned today, objected to Webster’s definition of "slave."
