Abigail Adams, the industrious

I love history, it's true. I loved living in Virginia Beach where we were able to spend so much time in Williamsburg, Washington DC, Jamestown, etc. They are places full of America's rich history.

One historical couple, in particular, always intrigued me: the Adams. John and Abigail Adams had a 50 year marriage that was filled with incredible suffering and trials, and they personally sacrificed so much for the correct/careful establishment and defense of this great nation. Though they spent most of their married life apart from one another, their letters back and forth reflect mutual love, respect and devotion to each other. I thought this additional nugget of history on Abigail Adams was particularly interesting.
