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 times.
