Summary
  • Abigail Adams in her life exemplified what it meant to be a woman, an American, and a revolutionary of the transitional period between colonial status and independence. Her aspirations were not precisely the same as those either of her seventeenth-century ancestors or of nineteenth- and twentieth-century descendants. The role she defined for herself as a woman was that of a wife, but a role entirely the equal of her husband's -- not the same but equal. - Editor's preface
  • A biography of the unschooled daughter of a country minister who was the wife of the second President of the United States and the mother of the sixth President
