Abigail was the wife of John Adams, who at the time was the second president of the United States. They had met when they were young men working on President Thomas Jefferson's campaign team. Abigail was from a wealthy family in Boston, and she was a strong supporter of Jefferson during his election contest with Adams. When he was elected, he married Abigail. She was 22 years old at the time of their marriage.

They had six children together: Charles Francis, Henry Clay Jr., Louisa Catherine, Mary Abigail, James Warren, and William Smith. The couple divorced in 1796. Abigail died in 1818 at the age of 60.

She is best known for her role in the coming-of-age story American Independence. During the period between the end of the French and Indian War in 1763 and the start of the American Revolution in 1775, Massachusetts banned the trade of furs within its borders, because most fur traders were British agents. John Adams, who was then a young lawyer in Boston, helped his friend Benjamin Franklin prepare a case against the law.

What did Abigail jeopardize in The Crucible?

Abigail's activities reflect poorly on Parris, whether she was dancing in the forest, having an affair with John Proctor, or taking Parris' money. Her acts imperil his "character," which his opponents can use to remove him from his position as Salem's minister. If found out, she could be prosecuted for witchcraft and hanged.

What does Abigail risk by accusing John Proctor of witchcraft?

By accusing John Proctor of witchcraft, Abigail risks being found out herself. She knows that if she is discovered to have practiced magic, she will be sentenced to death. However, if Proctor is found guilty, he will most likely be executed too. By turning Proctor in, Abigail hopes to save her own skin. She believes that by revealing his guilt, she can get mercy from the court. Although this doesn't happen immediately after she reports Proctor, it does seem to work; the court delays Proctor's execution until further notice.

Does anyone else believe that Abigail might be responsible for John Proctor's arrest?

No one doubts that Abigail is responsible for Proctor's arrest, but some people question whether she had anything to do with his conviction. It is possible that she manipulated the court into thinking he was guilty so they would spare his life.
