In April of 1776, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail from Philadelphia, "You bid me burn your letters. But I must forget you first." Whenever John and Abigail Adams were apart, they continued a steady conversation through letter writing, and kept every single letter! "Love Letters" begins with John and Abigail's courtship and continues through some of our nation's most tumultuous times. Enjoy these iconic personalities as they reveal their teasing humor, their pleasure in their children and farm, and their undying love and respect for each other. "Love Letters" is presented by Adams scholars and veteran living history performers Patricia Bridgman and Thomas Macy.
