John Adams (July 11, 1767 – February 23, 1848) was the second president of the United States of America, serving from 1797 to 1801.

Background[edit | edit source]

Before being the second president of the United States, Adams was the first vice president. He came to prominence during the American Revolution as a delegate to the Second Continental Congress for Massachusetts. A leading advocate for American independence from Great Britain, he persuaded Congress to a similar position and aided Thomas Jefferson in drafting the Declaration of Independence. He is mentioned in the National Archives' pop quiz terminals.
