This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Key Figures - John Adams. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
John Adams was a leader of the American Revolution, and served as the second U.S. president from 1797 to 1801. The Harvard-educated Adams began his career as a lawyer.
Intelligent, patriotic, opinionated and blunt, Adams became a critic of Great Britain’s authority in colonial America and viewed the British imposition of high taxes and tariffs as a tool of oppression. During the 1770s, he was a delegate to the Continental Congress.
In the 1780s, Adams served as a diplomat in Europe and helped negotiate the Treaty of Paris of 1783, which officially ended the American Revolutionary War. From 1789 to 1797, Adams was America’s first vice president. He then served a term as the nation’s second president but was defeated for another term by Thomas Jefferson.
