The Saturday Evening Post
On August 4, 1821, The Saturday Evening Post published its first issue.
According to the Post’s official history, it has a neat connection to Benjamin Franklin! In 1728, Franklin had the idea to create The Pennsylvania Gazette magazine. However, before he had a chance to begin work on the paper, his partner, Samuel Keimer, stole the name and idea. Luckily for Franklin, the paper failed within a year, and he and Hugh Meredith took over production in 1729.
