Abigail Smith Married John Adams
October 25, 1764

Abigail Adams kept track of these events, and many others that formed our nation in the letters she wrote to John. She and her husband corresponded with each other regularly while he attended the Continental Congress and Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia between 1774 and 1783, and again from 1789 to 1800. They also exchanged letters when she traveled between the family home in Quincy, Massachusetts, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where John Adams was serving as the nation's first vice president before becoming its second president in 1797.
