Are We Worthy?

Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.” ~John Adams letter to his wife Abigail Adams, 26 April 1777.

The photograph displayed is of Peacefield, John and Abigail Adams’ home in Quincy, Massachusetts. Their descendants lived here through the centuries and presented the home to the National Park Service with its contents intact.
