ABIGAIL ADAMS First Lady and Patriot "Remember the ladies," Abigail Adams wrote. "If particular care and attention is not paid to the Ladies we are determined to foment a Rebellion." This warning was given to Abigail's husband, John Adams, and other politicians who were working to create a new government for the colonies that would soon become the United States. Abigail Adams, a well-educated woman, was determined to make her voice--and the voices of fellow American women--heard as the nation was being formed. In Abigail Adams: First Lady and Patriot, author Pat McCarthy examines the life of the woman who is sometimes referred to as America's first feminist. From her youth in Massachusetts to her active role as advisor to John Adams, Abigail Adams showed future First Ladies how much of an influence a woman could have on the government of the United States.
This biography, written for teens but good for adults as well, tells the story of Abigail Adams, often using the letters she wrote to family and friends as resources. It reviews Abigail's growing up years, her courtship with John Adams and what she saw during the American Revolution, along with much more.
