Love Letters: The Intimate Correspondence of John and Abigail Adams, presented by living history performers Tom Gacy and Pat Bridgeman, will be held Sunday, Nov. 20, at 2 p.m. at the Stoughton Historical Society (6 Park St.).
The Jeffersons and the Washingtons burned all their personal letters, but 230 years later, the Adams’ letters remain a priceless treasure of our country’s history.
Enjoy these iconic personalities as they reveal their teasing humor, their pleasure in children and farm, their deepest hopes for the future, and their undying love and respect for each other. Following the presentation, the performers will converse with the audience, in character.
