A LifeLarge Print - 2010
A narrative based on previously un-mined documents reveals that the popular "Founding Mother" was willing to disagree with her husband, shrewd when investing the family fortune, and eager to correspond about men's subjugation of women.
In this vivid new biography of the most illustrious woman of America's founding era prize-winning historian Woody Holton offers a sweeping reinterpretation of Abigail Adams' life story and of women's roles in the creation of the republic. Using previously overlooked documents from a host of archives Holton shows that the wife of the second president of the United States was far more charismatic and influential than historians have realized.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
This is a great book that shows the life of a female during the Revolutionary war, and the founding of our country. I loved learning about her feelings and opinions of the time. It also shows that Great Presidents have great wives at their sides. They do not run the country on their own.
