About the "All-Stars'

  • Voting ends on March 31, the anniversary of her famous “Remember the Ladies” letter. The winner will be announced on April 1.
  • For the first round of voting, we grouped the letters into 8 categories: Education & Learning; Parenting & Family; Things Abigail Valued; Friends & Frenemies; Politics & Public Life; War; The World According to Abigail; and Women.
  • Are you wondering why Abigail’s March 31, 1776 letter to her husband John urging him to “Remember the Ladies” is not a part of the competition? It won the MHS Madness bracket in 2016 so we did not include it in this competition.
  • Discuss! Is your favorite letter amongst the 32 in the bracket? Which letter are you rooting for? Are you just learning about Abigail Adams now or have you been a fan of hers for a long time? Let us know on social media using the hashtag #RememberAbigail.
