John Adams was the second president of the United States. He was born October 30th, 1735 in Braintree Colony of Massachusetts. Before becoming President he was a farmer, a teacher, and a lawyer. Education was important to the Adams family and John attended Harvard College. He married Abigail Smith in 1764. Drafting the Declaration of Independence, in 1776, was one of his biggest accomplishments. Before becoming president he served as the first vice president under George Washington. He represented the Federalist Party. His term of presidency lasted from 1797 to 1801. During his retirement he returned to farming, writing to old friends and publishing in newspapers. Son, John Quincy Adams would later become the 6th president of the United States in 1825. John Adams is considered “The Father of the Navy”. He died on July 4th, 1826, the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.
