John Adams (/m/03_js)

John Adams was the second president of the United States, after serving as the first vice president of the United States. He was an American lawyer, statesman and diplomat, and as a Founding Father he advocated American independence from Great Britain. Adams was a well educated political theorist of the Age of Enlightenment who promoted republicanism and a strong central government; he wrote prolifically about his seminal ideas, in published works and in letters to his wife and key adviser Abigail Adams. Throughout his life he opposed slavery and proudly never owned a slave. After the Boston Massacre, with anti-British feelings in Boston at a boiling point, he provided a principled, controversial, and successful legal defense of the accused British soldiers, because he believed in the unqualified right to counsel and the "protect[ion] of innocence". Adams was a cousin of revolutionary leader Samuel Adams, and came to prominence himself in the early stages of the American Revolution. He was a lawyer and public figure in Boston, and as a delegate from Massachusetts to the Continental Congress, Adams played a leading role in persuading Congress to declare independence.
