August 28

Is the Feast Day of Saints Augustine of Hippo, Alexander of Constantinople, Edmund Arrowsmith, Julian of Brioude, and Moses of Abyssinia.

In 1640 the Indian War in New England ended with the surrender of the Indians.  John Wayne was not present.  In 1850 the English Channel telegraph cable was laid between Dover and Cap Gris Nez and in 1963 Martin Luther King delivered his famous 'I have a dream' speech in Washington DC.  In 1988 the Yan Hee Polyclinic in Bangkok, Thailand, reported on a new slimming technique overweight Thais were suppressing their appetites by sticking lettuce seeds in their ears and pressing them in ten times before meals.  No comment.

It was the date on which Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born in 1749 and John Huston died in 1988.  Apart from them celebrities seem to have steered pretty clear.
