John Adams, Jr. was an American lawyer, author, statesman, and diplomat. He served as the 2nd President of the United States, the 1st Vice President, and as a Founding Father was a leader of American independence from Great Britain.
Adams was a political theorist in the Age of Enlightenment who promoted republicanism and a strong central government. His innovative ideas were frequently published. He was also a dedicated diarist and correspondent, particularly with his wife and key adviser Abigail.
After his presidency, Adams had a long and productive retirement. He and his wife lived in Quincy, MA, and the former president spent the next quarter-century writing columns, books and letters. In 1812, he was encouraged to begin exchanging letters with his old rival Thomas Jefferson, and their voluminous correspondence lasted the rest of their lives.

Throughout President John Adams’ career, his wife, Abigail Adams, served as an unofficial adviser and their letters show him seeking her counsel on many issues, including his presidential aspirations. Adams remained a supportive spouse and confidante after her husband became the president in 1797, and her eldest son, John Quincy, would become president 7 years after her death in 1825.
Around the time her husband was defeated by Thomas Jefferson in the 1800 election, the Adams learned of the death of their 2nd son Charles, which was related to his alcoholism. With great sadness, the Adams soon moved to the country’s new capitol, WDC, where they became the first residents of the White House.
Abigail wrote many letters to family around this time, shedding light on the early days of the new capital and complaining about the unfinished state of their new home. A few months later, after John Adams left office in 1801, they returned to their family farm. Struggling with her own health for decades, Abigail Adams had a stroke and died at home with her family on October 28, 1818.
