John Adams was one of the most remarkable minds in US history. He had played huge roles in the early development of our country, and had a great impact on creating what is now our US constitution. Among the many remarkable achievements Adams had accomplished were two terms as vice president and a single term as the 2nd United States President.
John Adams was born in Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1735. His family, Adams says, "cut down more trees than anyone in the colony." During his early years, "Adams' mother pushes him toward the ministry, and Adams considers that direction, but he changes his mind." He was educated in Harvard, and pursued a career in law. He would become a quite successful lawyer.
Adams was raised and lived in Braintree, Massachusetts. He married Abigail Smith, the daughter of an old reverend, in 1764. Together, they had 4 children, one of whom, John Quincy, would become the nations 6th president.
