Rather than Webster’s Birthday you are undoubtedly used to seeing the Words “Webster’s Dictionary”.
On this date, October 16th 1758, Noah Webster was born- making it his 260th Birthday!
He published his first Dictionary in 1806, then immediately began work on an expanded and comprehensive American Dictionary that finally came out in 1828.
He died while working on a second volume in 1843.
His name has been sung in a number of Songs, and I’ll play a few!
Then the Theme is Words!
It’s a Celebration of a Man Who Has Truly Impacted Our Lives!
You can look it up, lol!
Give a listen, it’s going to be Fun!
