Half Doll
When women of today reflect on their many roles, they can be inspired by Abigail Adams, wife of our second president, John Adams. She was teacher and farmer, wife and mother, patriot and diplomat, first lady and mother of our sixth president. Her fighting spirit on behalf of women rings out in a letter to her husband in 1776, in which she said, “I desire you would Remember the Ladies and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the Husbands. Remember, all Men would be tyrants if they could.” John and Abigail retired to Quincy in March, 1801, delighted at last to be together without affairs of state separating their lives and thoughts. Still, Abigail did not give up letter writing or involvement in her world. She became advisor to her son, John Quincy Adams, who would be sworn in to serve as the nation’s sixth president in 1825.

Each half doll is only $45 plus $4.50 for shipping and handling.
