Abigail Adams by Janet Whitney ( Book )
18 editions published between 1947 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is a biography of Abigail Adams (1744-1818), the wife of John Adams, the second President of the United States, and the mother of John Quincy Adams, the sixth President of the U.S.. Adams's life is one of the most documented of the first ladies -- she is remembered for the many letters she wrote to her husband while he stayed in Philadelphia, during the Continental Congresses. John frequently sought the advice of Abigail on many matters, and their letters are filled with intellectual discussions on government and politics. The letters serve as eyewitness accounts of the American Revolutionary War home front. Presented chronologically, the author recounts the story how Abigail and John Adams fell in love and got married, describing how John Adams came to the Presidency as Abigail Adams gave birth to their children
