Abigail Adams (1744 – 1818) wife of President John Adams and mother of President John Quincy Adams. Abigail was not merely a great woman behind the great men; she actively brought attention to women's issues throughout her husbands political career, was an adviser to her husband, and a diarist who kept invaluable records during the beginning of the US as a nation.
