Sibyl Durrett Banks of Tuscaloosa will appear in “A Visit with Abigail Adams” at the Awards Banquet of the Warrior Rivers Chapter NSDAR on Thursday, April 29, at 11 a.m. at the Nineteenth Hole of Heritage Golf.
Mrs. Banks’s costume is similar to the gown Mrs. Adams wore in a portrait painted by Gilbert Stuart ca. 1800. She will give an interesting view of the life of Abigail Adams, wife of President John Adams.
