Argument of John Quincy Adams before the Supreme Court of the United States, in the case of the United States, appellants, vs. Cinque, and others, Africans, captured in the Schooner Amistad, by Lieut. Gedney, delivered on the 24th of February and 1st of March, 1841. With a review of the case of the Antelope, reported in the 10th, 11th, and 12th volumes of Wheaton's Reports by John Quincy Adams( Book )
29 editions published between 1841 and 2013 in English and held by 477 libraries worldwide
Abolitionists persuaded former President John Quincy Adams to represent the Amistad rebels before the Supreme Court. Adams accepted the invitation, stating that "there is in my estimation no higher object upon earth ... than to occupy that position." The 74-year-old Adams argued that the Africans had "vindicated their own right of liberty" by "executing the justice of Heaven" upon a "pirate murderer, their tyrant and oppressor." Adams, the son of one of America's founders, was the only surviving stateman who had been on close terms with Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe. In the end, the court ruled that the Africans had exercised the right of self-defence since they had been illegally transported as slaves from Africa to Cuba

The origin and principles of the American Revolution, compared with the origin and principles of the French Revolution by Friedrich von Gentz( Book )
31 editions published between 1800 and 2012 in English and held by 369 libraries worldwide
The Origin and Principles of the American Revolution is perhaps one of the most important books written on the American Revolution by a European author. It is an original study of the subject by a conservative, objective German observer who acknowledges the legitimacy of the American Revolution, but also asserts at the same time that it was not a revolution but a legitimate transition. In this modern edition by Liberty Fund, Gentz makes a convincing and eloquent case in presenting -- and defending -- the American Revolution as an event of moderation founded on custom and prescriptive rights. Gentz further defends the colonists by stating they were acting as preservationists of their existing rights. Gentz believed the American Revolution should be understood not as a revolution, but as a secession. -- Publisher description
