Summary

Discover the remarkable life of John Quincy Adams...

The son of the second president of the United States, John Quincy Adams was prepped and primed from his youth to be the quintessential statesmen. At just 14 years of age, he was given a diplomatic post in St. Petersburg, Russia. This was the beginning of a political career that would last until his last breath. 

Adams became a one-term president thanks to the populism of his archrival Andrew Jackson, but even after being ousted from the White House, the unsinkable John Quincy Adams came right back to the fore, getting himself elected as a Congressman in the House of Representatives. 

Here John Quincy Adams would be a force to be reckoned with, entering into endless debates with his colleagues. It was, in fact, in the middle of this congressional wrangling that John Quincy Adams would suffer a stroke and collapse on the House floor. His life was truly one of service, and he had lived it well. In this book, we explore the life of John Quincy Adams in full.

  • A child of the American Revolution
