Abigail Adams Portrayal, Dillonvale-Mt. Pleasant Branch
March 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
JoAnn F. Peterson will bring one of the most amazing women of history to life in a first-person portrayal of Founding Mother Abigail Adams. Abigail Adams is well known for her advocacy of women’s rights, especially in education, and her opposition to slavery. A valued confidant and advisor to her husband John Adams, the nation’s second president, Abigail cautioned him that the Founding Fathers should “remember the ladies” in the new laws they would write for our young country. Together, they were the first inhabitants of the White House. During the presentation, which is set in 1801 shortly after John Adams was defeated by Thomas Jefferson as President, you will hear of Abigail’s amazing life and correspondence with her husband.
