John Adams

Before I Became President
I graduated from Harvard in 1755 with a Bachelor of Arts degree
My first job was a schoolmaster in Worcester, Massachusetts
On October 25th,1764 I married Abigail Smith
We were married for nearly 44 years
Abigail and I had five children, Abigail, John Quincy, Susanna, Charles, and Thomas Boylston
I became the vice president of the United States for George Washington from 1789-1797
I drafted the declaration of independence, which helped separate our country from Britain
My Life as President
In 1796 I was elected as the Federalist nominee for president, and eventually beat Thomas Jefferson in the presidential election
I successfully became the second president of the United States, from 1797-1801
My mom sadly died during my first year of being president
During my presidency, I helped keep the United States out of conflict in the war between the French and the British
Life After Presidency
I lost my re-election in 1800, and did not have a second term as president
After my presidency, I lived with my wife on our family farm in Quincy, Massachusetts
I frequently corresponded with my dear friend Thomas Jefferson
My wife, Abigail sorrowfully died on October 28, 1818 from typhoid fever
My son, John Quincy Adams, was the sixth president of the United States from 1825-1829
A memorial was never made for me, but I understand that even today, people are still trying to have one made for me
I died on July 4, 1826, the same day as Thomas Jefferson, my friend
My last words were, " Thomas Jefferson survives."
