Thought-Provoking Biography About Abigail Adams Dec 16, 2004
Abigail Adams was born in 1744, during an era - Colonial America - where women had no rights, and were unable to show men that they too had thoughts. However, Abigail was an unusual woman, and could care less who saw that she was a thinking person. Her Mother despised this quality about her, and tried to stop it, but it was this quality that led her to marry John Adams, the future President of the United States, and creator of the Declaration of Independence. Abigail was a great influence on John in his quest of creating the Declaration of Independence, and also during John's Presidency. And, as if that weren't enough, Abigail was also the Mother of one of the next President's, John Quincy Adams. This is her story.
When I read about Abigail Adams in History class a few years ago, I found her to be quite intriguing, yet there wasn't much to learn, so I was ecstatic to find this wonderful biography about her. Jeri Chase Ferris has done a fabulous job of creating an in-depth, thought-provoking biography that will teach all children, whether young or old, about what Abigail Adams did for the United States, and the women who live in it. A must-have biography.
