Abigail Adams is perhaps best remembered for requesting that her husband, the not–yet–president John Adams, "remember the ladies" as he helped forge a new government in 1776. This famous private letter has turned Adams into a feminist icon, and while here she may have been specifically referring to domestic violence, in other letters she expressed what is often seen as a progressive, enlightened view that women should be equally educated with men and allowed to engage in business and control their own finances. This aspect of Adams's biography is well-known. But less so are her conflicted ideas on religion, African-Americans, money making, Europe, politics and family. In Abigail Adams, by American history scholar Woody Holton, readers are given a vivid and complete picture of America's second first lady.
