Lecture Description

Abigail and John Adams were married for fifty-four years, but spent less than half that time living together as a family. This accounts for the profusion of letters that exist between them, as well as to and from other family members and friends. Their letters describe the dynamic era of the American Revolution and Early National periods of American history from both the home front and the state diplomatic fronts. Theirs is as well a personal story, written by the two most eloquent, endearing and authentic letter-writers of their time.
