And more Abigail

This round of historical detection is ending. This is the house that Abigail and John Adams lived in after they returned from Europe. They called it Peacefield.

I found much material to make me ponder and start planning a different research trip to some obscure archives. I adore primary sources, don’t you?


Yes, this is the house where Abigail Smith Adams was born and where she lived until she married John Adams. I had goosebumps all day yesterday as I walked around the house, her parents’ gravesites, and was able to touch her father’s Bible.

(This is all for a picture book I’m writing about Abigail. I don’t know when it will come out. It depends on how long the research takes.)

Today I am meeting with a historian and swimming in archival material.

I love research!
