John Quincy Adams

Author Code: AJQA

Born: Jul. 11, 1767 - Braintree, Massachusetts, USA

Died: Feb. 23, 1848 - Washington D.C., USA

Sixth president of the United States. Adams was the eldest son of John Adams, the second U.S. president, whom he served as secretary in 1783 during the peace negotiations that ended the Revolution. He graduated from Harvard and opened his law practice in Boston. In 1793, he was appointed minister to Holland by Washington and sent to London to assist John Jay in the negotiation of Jay's Treaty with the British. In 1797 he was married and became minister to Prussia. In 1801, Adams was elected to the Massachusetts senate and in 1803 to the U.S. Senate. Although a Federalist, his support of the Louisiana Purchase and endorsement of Thomas Jefferson, led to his resignation in 1808. In 1809, Madison appointed him minister to Russia where he was very successful in encouraging friendly relations with Tsar Alexander. He was part of the negotiation team sent to Ghent to deal with the British and, in 1815, was named minister to Great Britain.
