Overview

John Adams was often overshadowed by the towering George Washington and the brilliant Thomas lefferson. But Adams himself played a leading role in the straggle for American independence. He was a courageous lawyer willing to defend even unpopular causes, a moving force in the Continental Congress, a brilliant diplomat who helped gain world recognition of the new United States. Then he served as the second U.S. president during a period of revolution and war in Europe and of ugly political conflict at home. He was not our most popular president, but he kept the young country out of the destructive European wars and preserved law and order at home. Only after his death did we learn more about his personal life through his diaries and through letters to and from his wife. Abigail.
