Abigail Adams on this day, March 7, 1776

Abigail Adams on this day, March 7, 1776, isn’t sure that all is yet well in British-controlled Boston, even though Washington’s men intimidated the British by posting artillery on Dorchester Heights. “This day our militia are all returning, without effecting anything more than taking possession of Dorchester Hill. I hope it is wise and just, but from all the muster and stir, I hoped and expected more important and decisive scenes; I would not have suffered all I have for two such hills. Ever since the taking of that we have had a perfect calm, nor can I learn yet what effect it has had in town Boston,” Abigail to John Adams revolution240.com http://ow.ly/i/el44y
