Meet Abigail Adams – History Speakers Bureau

Loading Events

Our History Speakers Bureau program brings engaging living history presentations to libraries, schools, and other organizations throughout Colorado. Join us and Mesa County Libraries Central Library as we meet Abigail Adams.

Played by Jessica Downing-Ford, Abigail served as our first Second Lady and our second First Lady. She felt strongly that women should be formerly educated and have rights independent of their husbands. In a time where Coverture was law, Abigail made and kept “Money which I call mine.” An avid letter writer, more than two thousand of her letters still exist creating an unparalleled narrative of her time.
