Abigail Adams: An American Heroine provides a concise but vibrant exploration of one of America’s early leaders from her position as the wife and advisor of America’s second president and the mother of its fifth president. Told in a lively manner and expert historic detail, this chapbook is part of the America’s Founders Biographical Series, which also features George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Lafayette.
The elegant prose of America’s Revolutionary generation is found in the America’s Founders Biographical Series by US Constitution historian John P. Kaminski, who adds dimension to the historic dramas of revolution and nation-making. Unlike traditional biographies, the chapbooks in this series emphasize the character, mannerisms, and physical appearance of the subjects as they were known to their contemporaries. In a unique way, the illuminating vignettes and “behind-the-curtain” glimpses of both well-known and obscure events provide a new perspective on the Founding generation.
