"My toast would be, may our country always be successful, but whether successful or otherwise, always right." – John Quincy Adams
A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history’s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors’ American Legends series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of America’s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known.
John Adams was one of his country’s seminal Founding Fathers and one of its most experienced, distinguished diplomats and politicians. Few men in American history have a record anywhere near comparable, but one of them happened to be Adams’s own son, John Quincy Adams. And yet, few Americans are familiar with him aside from the fact that he was his father’s son and the 6th president of the United States.
