Description
In addition to serving as 6th president of the US, John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) was also a foreign minister, secretary of state, senator, and congressman during his lengthy career. He also he kept a detailed diary starting at age 10, witnessing historical events from the eve of the Revolutionary War to eve of the Civil War. This readable narrative biography for general readers interweaves many excerpts from Adams's diary as it celebrates Adams's triumphs, such as ending the War of 1812, the founding of the Smithsonian Institute, and his anti-slavery stance in the face of resistance, and investigates his personal life as well. The book contains a chronology and b&w historical illustrations. Author Unger is a historian. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
