What are some fun facts for the year of 1827?

When I look for some information on an item that I am going to sell, there are times that I run across some fun facts that happened during a certain year.  Here are some of the fun facts that I ran across for 1827:

March 16—The Freedom’s Journal (the first African American owned newspaper in the U.S.) is founded by John Russwurm.

J. J. Audubon’s book titled THE BIRDS OF AMERICA is published in the United Kingdom.

The Original Delmonico’s restaurant opens in Manhattan.

The first English translation of Christopher Columbus’ Journal by Samuel Kettell is published.

This is only a small portion of what happened ion 1827.  What historical items have you run across?
