Back in the 1820s, Noah Webster was responsible for creating what is now America's most famous English Dictionary.
In 1806 he published A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language which is regarded as the first real dictionary about American English. Soon afterwards (1828) he published An American Dictionary of the English Language which eventually was regarded as the main authority on American English.
