Abigail Adams by Woody Holton

David McCullough redeemed John Adams in his Pulitzer Prize winning biography and here is your chance to meet the incredible woman who loved him. Abigail Adams was not only one of the finest writers of her age, she passionately campaigned for women’s education, denounced sex discrimination, and matched wits not only with her brilliant husband, but with Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. You go, girl!

  2. Wouldn’t it be great if HBO produced this title as a mini-series? It was obvious in the John Adams mini-series that Abigail was a very intelligent woman and played a very significant part in Pres. Adams life. Maybe Laura Linney would be up for the challenge.
