In this Livestream episodic series, Pay-Per-HAP escorts viewers to March 4th, 1825, when Louisa Catherine Adams has recently decided not to attend the presidential inauguration of her husband John Quincy Adams. A decision that prompts her to reflect on a tumultuous life in the public eye, she recalls her childhood in England and in France; to her adventures as wife to an American diplomat, where she charmed heads of state from Berlin to St. Petersburg! These memories offer a glimpse into international affairs during an age of revolution. When Louisa and JQA return to the United States, the flair for entertaining and political savvy that Louisa displays, affords the couple great fortune, as they travel between Boston and Washington, DC. Louisa, who supports her husband's rise to presidential power, now opts to stand in shadow, but why? Why, in this moment, as JQA wins the coveted office does she not present a united front?
