              This is where you can learn about our second president, John Adams.  Here you can learn about the times when he was president.

John Adams was our second president and our first vice president.  He lived longer than any other president, 91 years. For having no sense of humor, he was still a great president.  Although he was unrecognized for all his accomplishments, he still made our world a better place.

   Although Jefferson got credit for Adams' contributions, he did what the people elected him to do.  In my opinion, he was a great president, but to quiet.  That was because he had no sense of humor.  However, he was the one who created the alliance with France.  He tried for another term but lost to Jefferson.  In shame of loosing, he left for his hometown where he retired.  He died on July 4,1826, the same day as Jefferson.  His last words were,"Thomas Jefferson survives."
