John Adams's About

[]

John Adams was the second president of the United States of America and one of the country's founding fathers. He was the first vice president of the United States under President George Washington before becoming president. He was a serious and well-educated man who was well-known for his political ideas. He was a strong proponent of American independence from Britain, and he was instrumental in persuading Congress to proclaim independence, as well as assisting Thomas Jefferson in the crafting of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. He was an abolitionist and Enlightenment political thinker who was a staunch opponent of slavery. Adams climbed from humble origins as the son of a farmer and cobbler to acquire an education from a top institution and become a competent lawyer. He became interested in the patriot cause and led the American struggle for independence from Great Britain from an early age, believing in the goal of freedom for everyone. He also became involved in politics, serving as President Washington's first vice president in 1789 before replacing him as President of the United States in 1797. His accomplishments as president, while mostly unnoticed at the time, have earned wider attention in recent years.
