"As a pivotal player in the American Revolution and the early republic, John Adams had a front-row seat at critical moments in the creation of the United States, from the drafting of the Declaration of Independence to negotiating peace with Great Britain to serving as the first vice president and second president under the U.S. Constitution. Separated more often then they were together during this founding era, John and Abigail Adams shared their lives through letters that each addressed to "My Dearest Friend," debating ideas and commenting on current events while attending to the concerns of raising their children. This new collection - including some letters never before published - invites leaders to experience the founding of a nation and the partnership of two individuals, in their own words."--BOOK JACKET.
