How did Abigail Adams help with the revolutionary war?

She wrote letters to her husband, John Adams and helped him with decisions he might have had to make and brought up different issues like womens rights and slavery.

Basically she helped John Adams debate and have an input on some issues that concerned her and many others during the revolutionary war.

She also made the, 'remember the ladies' symbol as a symbol to women equality.

As in doing so, also convinced John Adams (her husband) to include this in the 'new code of laws' which sparked the Revolutionary War.

During the Revolutionary war, she also provided food and shelter (housing) for the soldiers. After that, John Adams got sent to England because of the war. Abigail followed. She acted as a hostess for both political and social gatherings.

How much is a John Adams dollar coin worth?

It's an ordinary circulation coin, part of the Presidential Series. Four designs are being released each year, depicting the presidents in the order they served.

Note that the coins are NOT gold, they're brass, and hundreds of millions of each are being made. They will not be worth more than $1 any time in the foreseeable future.

The only exception would be if it's a proof coin in its mint packaging. Then it might retail for $1.50 to $2.00

What is a Midnight Judge?

The "Midnight Judges" were 42 Federalist justices of the peace President John Adams appointed immediately before his administration ended and Thomas Jefferson's began. They were appointed because Adams realized the Federalist party was losing power and control in government to the Democratic-Republicans (who also called themselves "anti-Federalists,").

The Midnight Judges were symbolically important, but had little judicial power and only served five-year terms. They were appointed as a matter of patronage (a reward to a loyal political supporter) under the Organic Act of 1801 (for the District of Columbia), and were not part of the court-packing scheme devised under the Judiciary Act of 1801, that allowed Adams and the Federalist-dominated Congress to appoint a number of judges to Article III constitutional courts.

Those judges represented a real problem for incoming President Jefferson, because they received lifetime appointments and would have had a political and ideological impact on the US government for decades to come. The Midnight Judges, on the other hand, posed no political threat, but Jefferson allegedly believed John Adams had appointed an excessive number and withheld some of their commissions. They may also have been an annoying reminder of Adams' clever court-packing scheme, but that's a different story.

Several of the Midnight Judges whose commissions were withheld attempted to compel their delivery by filing suit in the US Supreme Court. These men played an important role in a landmark US Supreme Court case, Marbury v. Madison, (1803), and were ultimately of more historical importance than the higher federal judges.

What is a lesson to learn from John Adams?

One of the most important lessons we can learn, especially from John Adams, is that there were many, many wives like Abigail Adams who were completely responsible for their family's welfare, homes, farms, businesses and financial support while their husbands were engaged in the development of American government. They were invaluable advisors to their husbands, collected the political news for them and kept them informed through a system of letter writing, all while their husbands were away from home for long periods of time- years at a time. They were given heavy responsibilities, were the backbone of America and yet, their husbands would not even consider giving them equal status as citizens.

Another lesson to be learned is that perseverance pays off eventually.

Marriage
Depression and Bipolar Disorder
John Adams

What should a woman consider before marrying an older man with bipolar disorder who has been married twice?

My advice to ANYONE marrying someone who has been married twice - look hard at what caused the marriages to fail before. In almost all cases it was a two way street, and unless there has been a lot of change and/or counseling in the life of the potential spouse, there isn't any reason to think the outcome will be different this time. Please think this out. I don't think it's a good idea. The fact he has been married twice before means he is not willing to take a good hard look at himself and get help for his problem. It is so true that more women seek psychiatric help than men do. Most men feel they must, at all costs, be a man and figure their problems out themselves (you know ... the old stiff upper lip thing.) Marriage is tough enough, so I'd wait a bit before you consider marriage. If you truly love him, and he's not getting help for his problem just tell him like it is ... get help, then we will think about marriage. Unfortunately, many people seem to believe that they can "make it better". All this person needs is the right loving, caring individual to help them and all of the problems will go away. If the guy is bipolar there is good reason to be concerned.

My advice: Run.Marriage is a wonderful union when it's with the right person. I would advise you to be mindful of the redflags you raised just with your question alone. The first thing being that you already labeled him. Bipolar man. This is an illness that can bring with it times of sweet sweet highs, and deep dark lows. Being married to someone who is bipolar can be difficult simply because you can't fix the hurts this illness can cause. You can't be the one to make someone want treatment if they aren't willing to accept they are ill. Sometimes it's hurtful to be alongside someone who is ill and you are just going to have to ride out the highs and lows. There are medication changes, side effects, the symptoms can be unbearable for the one who is bipolar. So you can imagine how it can affect the one who is loving and living the illness without actually having been diagnosed with it. Being in love, married to, or live with someone who is bipolar is the closest you can come to actually having it, without having it. But to label him already, you might need to educate yourself about what you are willing to walk down the isle with. So that when things come up you have some idea how to deal with what is bipolar, and what is just everyday life. Sometimes the line is sooooo very thin, it's hard to tell. I would also look at the flags that are raised about why he has been married 2 times.

And when he talks about his ex wives what does he say? Does he accept any responsibility when it comes to saying why those marriages failed? If he doesn't I don't know if I would be so quick to walk down the isle with him.
