1770 1774-1776 1776 1776-1779 EVALUATIONS 0 + - = 9 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 c Austin's Evaluation My overall opinion of John Adams contributions to the United States history is that he was a great leader that impacted many people. I know that he was the United States first Vice President, and the second President. He impacted many people because he was elected into the Massachusetts Assembly. He attended the first Continental Congress, and he signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776. These are just a few reasons why he impacted the citizens of today. This is my overall opinion on John Adams' contributions to the United States history. Morgen's Evaluation My overall opinion of John Adams' contributions to the United States' history is that he did a lot of good things to help contribute by going ahead and was elected to the Massachusetts Assembly. After that he attended his first Continental Congress in 1774-76. He signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Finally, he was a member of the Assembly from state Constitution of Massachusetts. John Adam's Biography Born: October 30, 1736
Married to: Abigail Adams
Children: John Quincy Adams, Abigail Adams Smith, Charles Adams, Thomas Boylston Adams, Susanna Adams, and Elizabeth Adams
Death: July 4, 1826
Birthplace: Braintree, Massachusetts
Education: Graduate of Harvard (Lawyer)
Work: Admitted to Massachusetts Bar in 1761 What does John Adams look like? Rachel's Evaluation After all the research that our group did I believe the contribution that I find the most significant, was him signing the Declaration of Independence in 1776. With John Adams signing the Declaration of Independence he was one of the many men that made a significant impact in the United States history. I believe that this is more significant then any other contribution that he made because it changed how things were being run in the United States forever. I feel that if he wasn't a part of signing the Declaration of Independence, the other contributions that he made after that, such as; being appointed the diplomat of France, being elected the United States first Vice President, and elected as the second President of the United States wouldn't have happened. These contributions wouldn't have happened because if he wasn't there during those meetings of creating and then signing the Declaration of Independence he wouldn't have had that experience. Then he might have not had any motivation to do those other contributions. In conclusion, the most significant contribution that John Adams made was sign the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Areej's Evaluation One of John Adams' contributions is being the 2nd president of the United States. By accomplishing this he highly affected U.S. history! I would rate his contributions a 5. While he was the president, the navy and marine courts were established, which is a huge accomplishment. Also, he "kept the country out of war", there were many battles in the oceans, but war was never declared. The fact that there was no war was a huge contribution to history, because if there was war, the U.S. would've been in a lot of debt or had a lot of losses. It could have also affected the relationship with other countries, which would affect trade and the economy. All these negatives didn't happen, thanks to John Adams for properly controlling these things, and making a difference. This is why I would rate this contribution a 5. John Adams' Historical Contributions I believe that the moral focus virtue that most pertains to my patriot, John Adams, is perseverance. Perseverance means “steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement”-dictionary.com. John Adams demonstrated perseverance, because he had steady persistence in a course of action despite there being many difficulties, many obstacles, and discouragement. John Adams did many great things during his life. Some examples include, but are not limited, to signing the Declaration of Independence, being a leader during the Revolutionary War, being the first vice-president of the United States of America, and being the second president of the United States of America. During all of his contributions, there were many obstacles and difficulties that he had to overcome. However, since he persevered, we can enjoy the many things that he contributed to the society. Many of his obstacles came during his presidency. During his presidency, Adams solved many different types of problems. However, Adams could have solved more, had he not received the opposition that he did. For example, he had a program that included building canals, roads, a national university, an astronomical observatory, and many other great ideas. Nowadays, we would look back on that and know that those are great ideas as we have them today. However, many people back then of the opposing parties and even some of his own parties opposed many of ideas like that. Some even thought that he was getting arrogant because of his narrow victory against Thomas Jefferson when running to become the second president. Not only that, he had Thomas Jefferson, an opposing party member, as his vice-president. To top it all off, he had problems with a split in his own political party, which made it more difficult for him to get votes in his favor. Despite all of this, however, John Adams still managed to accomplish many things that we still look back on such as national banks, founding the Department of the Navy and the U.S. Constitution, creating a national currency, fighting the Quasi War with France, ending a war through diplomacy, passing four bills known as the Alien and Sedition Acts, road-building, etc. This is why I believe that John Adams demonstrated perseverance.
