John Adams was the second president of the United States, succeeding George Washington on March 4, 1797 and transitioning power to Thomas Jefferson on March 4, 1801. His presidency was quite a divisive one, as he awkwardly had his political opponent, Thomas Jefferson, as his vice president. It was so controversial, that the election of 1800 which was the rematch between Adams and Jefferson was called the Revolution of 1800.


John Adams was born on October 30, 1735 in Braintree, Massachusetts.


John Adams died on July 4, 1826, which was coincidentally the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. It was also the same day Thomas Jefferson died. In fact, Adam's last words were, "Thomas Jefferson survives", not aware that he had just passed a few hours earlier.
