Abigail Adams was Miss Adorable to her husband, John Adams, the second President of the United States. He was away much of their married life as Abigail managed the farm, raised their four children, ran a business, bought land and invested money. In the midst of this, she wrote more than 1600 letters that described her life and times in a newsy and often tender, emotional way. Her famous “Remember the Ladies” directive to her husband highlights her early push for equal rights for women under the law. Amidst a summer tea featuring refreshing iced tea and scrumptious fare, Abigail Adams – Wife, Mother, Patriot & Witness to a Revolution – will come to life!
This event is generously sponsored by the following businesses: Forever Sweet, Goldenberry, Party City, Penny Ha’Penny, Pepperidge Farm, Rafael Cakes & Sugar, and Sono Baking Company.
