John Adams Portrayer George Baker: My Wife, Abigail Adams, the First Modern American Woman

Sunday, February 26th

John Adams (New Canaan, CT attorney, George Baker) talks with admiration, humor and affection about “My Wife, Abigail Adams, the First Modern American Woman.” During the presentation, he describes how Abigail defied the sexist conventions of her time (married women could not own property) and, with her amazing financial skills and insights she made the Adams family prosperous. She helped found the new nation and raised their son to become president. This program is chock full of details about Abigail’s life which most people don’t even know. It is told from the perspective of a husband talking about his wife, and contains the story of their romance, challenges, trials and accomplishments which makes them sound like ordinary people living in extraordinary times.
