Summary
john Quincy Adams 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. Here, Unger shows how Quincy Adams was a towering figure in the nation's formative years and one of the most courageous figures in American history. This biography presents a sweeping panorama of American history from the Washington to Lincoln eras, following one of America's most important yet least-known figures.
