Name: Abigail Adams

Abigail Adams (née Smith) (November 11, 1744 – October 28, 1818) was the wife of       
John Adams, the second President of the United States, and is seen as the first           
Second Lady of the United States and the second First Lady of the United States           
though the terms were not coined until after her death.                                   
Adams is remembered today for the many letters she wrote to her husband while he         
stayed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during the Continental Congresses. John             
Adams frequently sought the advice of his wife on many matters, and their                 
letters are filled with intellectual discussions on government and politics. The         
letters are invaluable eyewitness accounts of the Revolutionary War home front           
as well as excellent sources of political commentary.
