About this product: Synopsis A biography of the extraordinary man who became the second president of the United States, this book traces John Adams' adventurous life and spirited rivalry with Thomas Jefferson, and encompasses both the American Revolution and the birth of the young republic. In this powerful, epic biography, David McCullough unfolds the adventurous life journey of John Adams, the brilliant, fiercely independent, often irascible, always honest Yankee patriot who spared nothing in his zeal for the American Revolution; who rose to become the second president of the United States and saved the country from blundering into an unnecessary war; who was learned beyond all but a few and regarded by some as "out of his senses"; and whose marriage to the wise and valiant Abigail Adams is one of the moving love stories in American history.
This is history on a grand scale -- a book about politics and war and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship, and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas.

He never learned to flatter. There was no money in his background, no Adams fortune or elegant Adams homestead like the Boston mansion of John Hancock. It was in the courtrooms of Massachusetts and on the printed page, principally in the newspapers of Boston, that Adams had distinguished himself. Years of riding the court circuit and his brilliance before the bar had brought him wide recognition and respect. And of greater consequence in recent years had been his spirited determination and eloquence in the cause of American rights and liberties.
That he relished the sharp conflict and theater of the courtroom, that he loved the esteem that came with public life, no less than he loved my farm, my family and goose quill, there is no doubt, however frequently he protested to the contrary. His desire for distinction was too great.
Patriotism burned in him like a blue flame. I have a zeal at my heart for my country and her friends which I cannot smother or conceal, he told Abigail, warning that it could mean privation and unhappiness for his family unless regulated by cooler judgment than his own. He was a second cousin of Samuel Adams, but possessed of another species of character, as his Philadelphia friend Benjamin Rush would explain.
He saw the whole of a subject at a glance, and. He was a stranger to dissimulation. It had been John Adams, in the aftermath of Lexington and Concord, who rose in the Congress to speak of the urgent need to save the New England army facing the British at Boston and in the same speech called on Congress to put the Virginian George Washington at the head of the army.
That was now six months past. The general had since established a command at Cambridge, and it was there that Adams was headed.
It was his third trip in a week to Cambridge, and the beginning of a much longer undertaking by horseback. He would ride on to Philadelphia, a journey of nearly miles that he had made before, though never in such punishing weather or at so perilous an hour for his country. The man riding with him was Joseph Bass, a young shoemaker and Braintree neighbor hired temporarily as servant and traveling companion.
The day was Wednesday, January 24, Winter makes its approaches fast, she had written to John in November. I hope I shall not be obliged to spend it without my dearest friend. I have been like a nun in a cloister ever since you went away. He would never return to Philadelphia without her, he had vowed in a letter from his lodgings there. But they each knew better, just as each understood the importance of having Joseph Bass go with him. The Earliest Diary of John Adams. Chinard, Gilbert.

Morgan 1 John Adams: The Cicero of Early America At a time when virtually all educated Americans and the society at large were arguably more steeped in the classics than at any other point in American history, John Adams stands out as the exemplary classicist of his generation. He was blessed with great courage and good humor, yet subject to spells of despair, and especially when separated from his family or during periods of prolonged inactivity. Can authority be more amiable and respectable when it descends from accidents or institutions established in remote antiquity than when it springs fresh from the hearts and judgments of an honest and enlightened people?
Is it known that he ever advised the Ministry to lay internal Taxes upon Us? See also Chinard , 51 and Ryerson , 49 for the Stamp Act riots.
