schema:description"A towering figure in the formative years of the American nation, John Quincy Adams was the only son of a Founding Father president to become president himself, and the first one to serve in Congress after his term. Pushed by his parents to climb to the heights of their ambitions, Adams surpassed their expectations, not only as president, but also as an ambassador, a powerful voice before the Supreme Court, a fearless secretary of state, and America's first champion of human rights. He fought for Washington, served with Lincoln, witnessed Bunker Hill, and sounded the clarion against slavery on the eve of the Civil War. He negotiated an end to the War of 1812, engineered the annexation of Florida, and won the Supreme Court decision that freed the African captives of The Amistad. He served his nation as minister to six countries, secretary of state, senator, congressman, and president. John Quincy Adams was all of these things and more. In this biography, the author reveals Quincy Adams as one of the most courageous figures in American history, which is why he ranked first in John F. Kennedy's Pulitzer Prize winning book Profiles in Courage. This biography and sweeping panorama of American history from the Washington to Lincoln eras, follows one of America's most important yet least-known figures."
