Born in MA on July 11, 1767, John Quincy Adams, eldest son of the 2nd President John Adams, was an American statesman who served as the 6th President of the United States from 1825 to 1829. In his pre-presidential years, Adams was one of America's greatest diplomats, formulating, among other things, what became the Monroe Doctrine.

In his post-presidential years, he conducted a consistent and often dramatic fight against the expansion of slavery. Though full of promise, his presidential years were difficult. His best years of service came before and after his time in the White House.

John Quincy Adams did not retire from public life after leaving the presidential office. In 1830, he ran for and won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, once again distinguishing himself as a statesman of the first order. In 1836, Adams focused his long-standing anti-slavery sentiment on defeating a gag-rule instituted by Southerners to stifle debate. In 1841, he argued in front of the Supreme Court on behalf of escaped African slaves in the famous Amistad case, and won the release of the captives.

The Democratic-Republicans party broke apart in the 1824 election. A large majority of the states now chose electors by popular vote, and the people’s vote was considered sufficiently important to record.

By the fall of 1824, 4 candidates remained in the running. William Crawford of GA, the Secretary of the Treasury, had been the early front-runner, but severe illness hampered his candidacy.

Secretary of State, John Q. Adams of MA had a brilliant record of government service, but his Federalist background, his cosmopolitanism, and his cold New England manner cost him support outside his own region. Henry Clay of KY, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Andrew Jackson of TN, who owed his popularity to his 1815 victory over the British at the Battle of New Orleans, were the other candidates.

Power point #2 is entitled, US Presidential Elections - Election of 1824 - John Quincy Adams and contains 11 slides and covers the following:

U.S. Presidential Elections
Election of 1824

Four Candidates
Henry Clay
