John & Abigail Adams | Maps: Sites of Liberty | PBS / American Experience
This interactive map shows closeups of some of the places of the birth of the nation. Be sure to note the little "Image" tab at each site.

At a richer level, you can also hear excerpts of John & Abigail's letters. And the Adams Unbound interactive lets you explore his thoughts and writing on the French Revolution -- thoughts which would split him from his old friend Jefferson for nearly 25 years.

Adams' life ended in a drama more poetic perhaps than Romeo and Juliet. It was lived as fully and successfully as few have ever been.

Have you been to Washington, to the Adams memorial?
