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.
