Today In History
October 251764: Library of Congress: Abigail Smith married a young lawyer from Braintree (now Quincy), Massachusetts, by the name of John Adams, who would become, some thirty years later, the second president of the United States. Their union launched a vital and long-lived partnership of fifty-four years, which carried the couple from colonial Boston to Philadelphia and the politics of revolution; to Paris and London and the world of international diplomacy; and finally to New York , Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., where in November, 1800 they became the first presidential couple to occupy the newly built White House in the nation’s new capital. Among their five children, John Quincy Adams would also become a U.S. president. For almost two centuries, Abigail Smith Adams remained the only American who was both the wife and the mother of a president, a distinction she now shares with Barbara Bush. Abigail Adams is perhaps best remembered for her letters, written especially to her husband during long periods of separation, but also to her larger network of family members and friends, such as Mercy Otis Warren and Thomas Jefferson.
