John and Abigail Adams are the most uncelebrated first power couple of American history. Abigail Adams was truly the power behind the man in the truest sense of the word. Theirs is a love story so beautifully expressed in their letters. Not only can you experience colonial American life and marriage, but you get a deep understanding of the political system. Abigail’s influence on John is so subtle and so blatant depending on the situation. She is the unsung hero of the American Revolution and Constitutional struggle for me.
