This November is the 275th anniversary of Abigail Adams' birth. Her biographer Edith Gelles talked about the social and political relationship between Adams and her friend, the poet and historian Mercy Otis Warren. They were two of the most significant women in Revolutionary War America. When they met, Warren was a mentor to the younger Adams. But it was Abigail who ended up in the White House with her husband John. The Abigail Adams Historical Society and the Hingham Historical Society co-hosted this event. close
