John Quincy Adams was more than President of the United States. He was a brilliant diplomat who negotiated the treaty of Ghent that formally ended the American Revolution. He served as Secretary of State. He was our first Minister to Russia, and won election to both the Senate and House, the latter after Andrew Jackson defeated him for a second presidential term. In his later years, he adopted the abolitionist cause and successfully represented the imprisoned Africans who had commandeered the slave ship Amistad and won them their freedom.
