NOTE: John Quincy Adams is my favorite president, like, ever. Because of that, this article may be a tad bit biased.

John Quincy Adams was the sixth president, serving from 1825 - 1829. Adams was the last Democratic-Republican president, and son of former president John Adams. A controversial president, he had been elected through the House of Representatives due to the fact that no candidate received a majority of electoral votes, even though Andrew Jackson had the most. However, Adams was still elected causing him to be accused of a "corrupt bargain" with the House Speaker, Henry Clay. All this divisiveness would lead to the Democratic-Republican party splitting. Other than the presidency, though, Adams is considered one of the best ministers and diplomats in the history of the United States. He was also the first of two presidents (the other being Andrew Johnson) to become a member of the House of Representatives after being president. Adams would remain a Representative until his death.

John Quincy Adams aged, circa 1840-1849


Adams was born on July 11, 1767 in Braintree, Massachusetts, where his father was also born. The city is now known as Quincy, Massachusetts, after John Quincy Adams.


On February 21, 1848, the matter of honoring soldiers in the Mexican-American War was brought up in a session in the House of Representatives. Adams, who had become a representative after his presidency, had been a critic of the war and yelled, "no!". Shortly after that, he asked a question to the House Speaker and then collapsed on the House floor. He would pass away two days later, on February 23, 1848.
