LIVESTREAM: John and Abigail Adams
March 4, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Presidential Historian Dr. Gary Hylander presents John and Abigail Adams: An American Marriage. This couple played important roles in the many pivotal events of their era. John was a key figure in the Continental Congress and later wartime emissary to France. Abigail was an important eyewitness reporter during the siege of Boston in John’s absence. She was left alone to raise the family and manage the farm. After the Revolution, John and Abigail were deeply caught up in the political turmoil of the 1790’s, which almost pulled the new nation apart. A fascinating presentation from the Jenks Center archive. Tune to WinCam Verizon Channel 36 or Comcast Channel 8. Available on our website after the livestream date.
