On Friday August 27th, Sarah Meadow Walsh and her daughter Ziva welcome viewers to the year 1776, as Abigail Adams and her daughter "Nabby" Adams witness an American insurrection. In Quarantine with Mrs. Adams, mother and daughter reflect upon the Pox Americana; a smallpox epidemic that plagued Boston and its environs, their recent quarantine; to the receipt of a life-saving inoculation. Join us for Pay-Per-HAP Episode #54, produced by History At Play™, LLC (HAP, LLC), as we livestream direct to you!

In Pay-Per-HAP Episode #54, meet Abigail Adams: wife to and mother of Presidents John and John Quincy. Mrs Adams, by necessity and circumstance, almost single-handedly raised her children; managed a farm; and negotiated business transactions. Educated, intelligent, and perceptive, Abigail Adams and husband John referred to each other as “Dearest Friend,” as she was his most trusted advisor and confidant.

It is late August 1776 and with John’s triumphant forwarding of the cause for independence, Abigail prepares to relocate her family to the beloved family farm in Braintree, Massachusetts, after having spent nearly two months in her uncle’s Boston home. She contemplates on her return and cautiously commends the smallpox inoculation campaign, to resist an epidemic is almost as fierce a battle as the one expected to occur on the battlefield.

Sarah Meadow Walsh is a librarian and educator who discovered the field of living history via the theatre. Her journey with Abigail Adams began in Seattle in 2015, when she played her in a production of1776 that was cast entirely with women and non-binary actors. Following that, Sarah was invited to study Abigail's life in earnest and portray her at 18th-Century events and re-enactments throughout the West Coast and Southwest. Having learned machine sewing from her mother at age 10, Sarah is now building her historical hand-sewing skills and is in the process of creating wardrobe for different eras in Abigail's life. Sarah's daughter, Ziva, has been immersed in 18th-Century re-enacting since she was 3 years old and portrays Nabby; John and Abigail's only daughter to survive past infancy. Sarah and her family now live in the D.C. vicinity, where the United States' tangible history is accessible in so many ways-- to be celebrated, to be wrestled with, and to be confronted in earnest.
