I just finished “John Adams” by McCullough. It was a great read. McCullough layers you with facts and clearly cites potential conjecture. After reading the book I’ve found a new perspective on the immaturity of America in those early days. It has made me less cynical for the absurdity of our times. Also, the read makes me more optimistic for our current national crises. Most of all, I’m thoroughly impressed by Abigail Adams. What an amazing person. I was far more impressed by Abigail than I was by her husband, who clearly was a great man in his own right.
