Abigail Adams: Inside the Early Republic

A Road Scholar program by Leslie Goddard

More than just a wife (of second president John Adams) and mother (of sixth president John Quincy Adams), Abigail Adams was a true partner to her husband and a committed patriot. Feisty and outspoken, she immersed herself in the politics of her day even while she ran the family`s farm. In this first-person program, Adams recounts her life, including her famous call to John to `Remember the Ladies` in the founding of the new nation. She shares her gossipy opinions of the founding fathers, displays her lively wit and offers a glimpse at one of the great love stories of all time.
