In her many letters to her husband and friends, Abigail Adams expressed the concerns and accomplishments of an early American patriotic woman. Her most famous request was for Congress to "Remember the ladies" in the creation of the Constitution of the United States. It was her clear understanding that women's influences in the domestic sphere were as integral to the development of a new nation as the more public efforts of the founding fathers. Family economics, children's education and civic responsibility are the primary concerns of Abigail Adams. Her requests for legislation to benefit future generations included the necessity of education for all children regardless of sex or color, as well as the right to self-determination for all individuals including the emancipation of slaves and granting wives equal status under the law. An understanding of her hopes for posterity begs the question: If the founding fathers would have heeded Mrs. Adams’s advice sooner, would the nation have been spared years of strife from civil war to civil rights? A conversation with ‘Dear Abigail’, 18th century wife and mother, provides insight into the concerns of today's Americans and visitors. Catch a glimpse into the life of this important woman, as well as a glimpse into 18th century society by joining us for a special Friday evening event as Kim Hanley portrays the Founding Mother, Patriot, Wife and Political Advisor to America’s second President. Refreshments will be served.
