Today in American History…Abigail Fillmore was Born

Abigail Fillmore was born on March 13, 1798. She was the wife of our 13th president, Millard Fillmore. Abigail Fillmore had a lifelong passion for books and learning and shared this passion with her husband. One fun fact about her is that her husband was her former pupil when she taught at New Hope Academy in New York. She also supposedly encouraged her husband to veto the Fugitive Slave Law/Act (which in turn may have cost him a second term) #womenshistorymonth #potus #flotus #abigailfillmore #thehistoricalhomemaker #thehistoricaltraveler
