Description: America's first “power couple,” John and Abigail Adams shared a correspondence of over 1,100 letters from 1762-1801 that detailed some of the most significant events in American history. Their personal accounts of America's political tensions with Great Britain and their unyielding determination to design
a new independent nation are beautifully nuanced with descriptions of domestic life in Boston, and underscored with Abigail's tremendous personal sacrifices to support her husband's political career.
