The American Bible Society is organized. Bible societies start developing both as a result of and in order to promote Protestantism's emphasis on personal bible study.

The purpose of the American Bible Society is to publish, distribute and translate the Bible for as many people as possible. The founders are all abolitionists whose early officers include John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and Francis Scott Key, the writer of the United States' National Anthem.
