This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War – Key Figures – Abigail Adams. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
Throughout President John Adams’ career, his wife, Abigail Adams, served as an unofficial adviser and their letters show him seeking her counsel on many issues, including his presidential aspirations. Adams remained a supportive spouse and confidante after her husband became the president in 1797, and her eldest son, John Quincy, would become president 7 years after her death in 1825.
Around the time her husband was defeated by Thomas Jefferson in the 1800 election, the Adams learned of the death of their 2nd son Charles, which was related to his alcoholism. With great sadness, the Adams soon moved to the country’s new capitol, WDC, where they became the first residents of the White House.
Abigail wrote many letters to family around this time, shedding light on the early days of the new capital and complaining about the unfinished state of their new home. A few months later, after John Adams left office in 1801, they returned to their family farm. Struggling with her own health for decades, Abigail Adams had a stroke and died at home with her family on October 28, 1818.
