About the event
Wife to the second president of the United States and mother to the sixth, Abigail Adams was a witness to the birth of the nation. As the first First Lady to reside in the White House, she took an active role in politics and policy as a voice against slavery and an advocate for women’s education and property rights.
“Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the Husbands. Remember all Men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the Ladies we are determined to foment a Rebellion and will not hold ourselves bound by any Laws in which we have no voice or Representation.”
-Abigail Adams, March 1776
Portrayed by JoAnn Peterson of Kingwood
