Discover the important roles that John Adams and his wife Abigail played in the founding the United States as historians David McCullough, Joanne Freeman, and Joseph Ellis offer an intimate portrait of the marriage that helped to shape a nation. They say that behind every great politician is a great woman, and though John Adams (Simon Russell Beale) was a natural born leader, his wife Abigail (Linda Emond) was his greatest political ally. A loyal wife and trusted advisor, she was always present as a supporter and a confidant. By drawing on correspondences between the couple from when John was in Philadelphia working in the Continental Congress and serving as America's first ambassador to England, screenwriter Elizabeth Deane presents a side of their relationship that's often left out of the history books, but still remains a crucial chapter in the history of America.
