A Little History…
Our Abigail Adams Room has been named after Abigail Smith Adams who happened to be the wife of the 2nd U.S president, John Adams. She was also mother to the 6th U.S president, John Quincy Adams.
The history of Abigail Smith Adams starts with her marriage to John Adams, a circuit judge, in 1764. Many of their early years together were spent apart. John Adams spent much of his time travelling and this eventually led to him becoming a major player in the American Revolution.
During this time apart, they spent an inordinate amount of time writing to one another, and these letters have become a source of information for us today about the Revolutionary era.
Abigail and John lived briefly in both France and England where John served as a US Ambassador. When John Adams became the country’s first vice-president under George Washington, Abigail struck up a lasting friendship with First Lady Martha Washington.
John Adams finally served as president in 1797. However, after his single term ended in 1801, he retired with Abigail to their home in Quincy, Massachusetts. They had a son, John Quincy, who became president in 1825. Abigail Smith Adams died of typhoid fever in 1818.
