Abigail Adams
This five minute video does not have narration and replies on images and graphics to tell the story of this powerful wife of John Adams. There is little context given for the letters and nothing about the impact of them at the time they were written. At best, just an overview of Mrs. Adams and what she was trying to do and to provide interest for others to follow her trail. Slow loading. Music may be muted without losing any of the message.
