Abigail Adams: The Dearest Friend of John Adams

Abigail Smith Adams was a woman of strong beliefs who supported the creation of the United States of America. She believed in doing one’s duty, leading a life of integrity and hard work. Despite her lack of formal education, she presented brilliant arguments to her husband and her son, both of whom would become presidents, thus leaving her mark on the evolution of the American government. As Abigail Adams, Janet Worthington presents both the personal life and political connections of our second first lady. Abigail’s reactions to the American Revolution, to slavery, and most of all to her dearest friend, her husband John Adams, inspire love and respect for this woman who sacrificed so much for her country.
