Editorial Reviews

Joint portrait of the patriots who played a pivotal role in the American Revolution. John's passion and eloquence convinced the colonists to fight the British, while Abigail supported John's efforts from the home front. Their life together remains one of America's most enduring love stories.

This is a wonderful Biography production, drawing upon a number of impressive Adams scholars and modern politicians (including David McCullough, Adams' most famous biographer; Joseph Ellis, author of Founding Brothers; a couple of Adams' descendants; and President George H.W. Bush). Not only does it tell the story of a vastly underappreciated Founding Father, it lauds his wife as an equal and contributing patriot in her own right. The story of John and Abigail Adams is really a unique one in American history; it is a great love story on two counts - love for one another and love for country. The production probably goes a little bit too far when it seems to imply that the Revolution may not have happened had John not met Abigail, but it does do a great service in righting the wrong that has all but expunged John Adams' name from the story of the Revolution. Today, he is remembered as the second President of the United States, and a rather poor one at that. Adams was clearly a very stubborn man, and his uncompromising insistence on doing what he thought was right did not make any friends among the politicians in Congress. Worst of all, he signed the Alien & Sedition Act (partly, this video suggests, at the urging of his wife who was tired of seeing him pilloried in the press), and this dangerous infringement on the rights of a free press has left a pretty dark stain on his record.

Most of this video deals with Adams' life before he took government office, and it does a superb job of educating viewers as to Adams' integral role in the fight for independence.

3.0 out of 5 stars One Big Problem... January 18, 2006
The DVD cover should have Abigail and her husband John Adams on the front. But instead it has Abigail and HER SON JOHN "QUINCY" ADAMS on the front. What knucklehead approved this?

2.0 out of 5 stars A bad cover October 12, 2007
Though I plan to watch the video later, but clearly the photo shows John Quincy Adams, the 6th president, and not his father, John Adams, the 2nd president.

Did somebody do their homework?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but -- March 8, 2009
Verified Purchase
too short to give as much of their lives as matters. He drove the Continental Congress to declare independence, got funding for the "revolution," helped negotiate the treaty with Britain ending the "revolution," wrote the Massachusetts-Bay constitution, which was the model for the US Constitution, and was first Vice President and second President. And that's still not all of it.

She was the eyes and ears for John, and therefore the Continental Congress, during the siege of Boston, organized support for the troops, and was the anchor for the insecure John.
