Harlow Giles Unger ´ 1 CHARACTERS CHARACTERS Ç John uincy Adams Wering figure in America's formative yea A Further Look At John uincy AdamsJohn uincy Adams 1767 1848 the sixth president has been receiving increased attention in recent years through histories and biographies I read Harlow Giles Unger s biography John uncy Adams as a result of a book reading trade with a Goodreads friend I had reviewed Fred Kaplan s 2015 biography John uincy Adams American Visionary while my friend Jean had read Unger s book We each agreed to read the other s book Jean was first in fulfilling her part of the bargain Kaplan s book which Jean read is lengthy and detailed while Unger s book moves along uickly Unger has written many books on early American history geared to a broad audienceThe strength of Unger s book lies in its writing His biography is lively and accessible with a good deal of particular detail and storytelling that helps the reader appreciate a freuently curmudgeonly figure and his place in his times Unger offers a flowing account of JA and the people in his life including his illustrious parents John and Abigail Adams his wife Louisa his family and the many political international and educational figures that were important in Adam s life and careerJA may have been the most intellectually gifted and highly educated person to hold the presidency As Unger shows he was driven by his parents to succeed from his earliest years and at a large emotional cost he did From a young age Adams was a scholar of languages and literature and also had a great interest in scientific advancement He was a companion of the intellectual and political elite from his teens Spending much of his youth in Europe JA developed a flair for diplomacy He spent many years as United States minister to Russia for example and was the lead American negotiator with Britain in ending the War of 1812 He served for eight years as Secretary of State under James Monroe and was instrumental in the development of the Monroe Doctrine before his highly contested election to the presidency By virtually all accounts his presidency was unsuccessful JA remained in public life as a Congressman from Massachusetts and pursued an independent course He attained renown for his opposition to the gag rule and to slaveryUnger stresses JA s autonomy and integrity which together with his emotional temperament and stubbornness made it difficult for him to function in the pragmatic world of party politics In addition Unger emphasizes that JA s lifelong work with intellectual and cultural elites in diplomacy and education had given him little understanding of how to relate to ordinary Americans of his day JA s America was made of struggling farmers and tradespeople who had little use for Latin authors or for JA s fascination with astronomy and the telescope The ualities which made JA a superb diplomat at the highest levels and a scholar were not the ualities that stood him in good stead as a popular leader JA remains an extraordinary person and as Kaplan s book emphasizes a visionary American leader who was both behind and ahead of his times Americans still have much to learn from JA and his wisdom love of country and rejection of factionIt is valuable to study important figures that one admires from a variety of perspectives Thus I enjoyed revisiting JA with

CHARACTERS × GRUPOSIAM.CO ´ Harlow Giles Unger

Harlow Giles Unger ´ 1 CHARACTERS CHARACTERS Ç John uincy Adams From an award winning and leading Foundi Harlow Giles Unger s new biography of John uincy Adams is well written and superbly researched The book is fast paced and supremely readable while not missing any aspect of JA s life Unger seamlessly weaves the words of Adams into his narrative and Unger s always solid research augments the story that it seems like JA helps tell John uincy Adams wrote in a diary daily from age 10 to death this along with the massive correspondence between JA and his parents John and Abigail Adams together with the massive amount of reports JA submitted during his career Unger put it all together into a fascinating biography There is so much information in this book it is hard to even highlight the informationJohn and Abigail Adams saw to the education of their first born son and by the time he was ten years old he was fluent in Latin and Greek He was already well read in Shakespeare and other leading literature of his day He accompanied his father to Europe when he was 12 years old and spent his teenage years in Europe meeting all the key political military authors philosophers people of the day He became fluent in Greek Latin English French Dutch Russian German Spanish and Italian and learned some Swedish JA attended Leiden University in the Netherlands and when he returned to Boston he went to Harvard He read the law with a prominent Boston attorney and was admitted to the Bar JA was American Ambassador to six European countries negotiated the peace treaty that ended the War of 1812 Served eight years as Secretary of State engineered the annexation of Florida and wrote the core provision of the Monroe Doctrine warning European s never again to try to colonize the Western World He also wrote the Constitution of Massachusetts John uincy Adams is considered by scholars to be the best diplomat this country has had to dateAs an attorney JA defended the African prisoners of the Spanish slave ship Amistad JA argued they had been kidnapped and had a legal right to defend themselves and attempt to escape from their kidnappers Adams successfully defended the case before the Supreme Court The only unsuccessful period in the long history of JA was his presidency I had learned in school it was because he was unable to relate to the people because he was too educated Unger points out that JA angered Andrew Jackson because he though Adams cheated him out of the presidency Jackson created a new political party called Democrats or Jacksonian Democrats Unger shows how they deliberately shut the government down so Adams was unable to have bills passed or appointments made The only major accomplishment was he almost cleared the federal debtJA is the only former President that went on to serve in Congress JA belonged to no political party He served 16 years as the Senator from Massachusetts When in Congress JA defended Supreme Court Justice Samuel Chase in his impeachment trial Chase was accused of sedition and treason high crimes and misdemeanors Adams argued that the charges brought against Chase were indictable criminal acts not political statements He said This is a party prosecution Adams defense of Chase proved the earliest significant defense of the first amendment John uincy obtained an acuittal of Chase and prevented an American President Jefferson from criminalizing political dissent JA ensured the founding of the Smithsonian Institution from an endowment from a British Lord He protected the principal and the institution can use the interest He spurred the construction of a net work of astronomical observatories across the nation Adams risked death by championing abolition and emancipation as a congressmanJohn uince Adams married Louisa Catherine Johnson the daughter of an American diplomatmerchant and an English mother She was born in London They were married at the church of All Hallows by the tower in London Louisa is the only first lady not to be born in the United States In 1878 John uincy Adam s youngest son Charles Frances Adams built the first memorial presidential library in the US to honor his father The library is located in uincy MaOn the personal side I noted JA suffered from bouts of depression throughout his life Louisa had many miscarriages and suffered from migraine headaches I noted she had bouts of depression starting when they lived in the White House Apparently alcoholism ran in the family from Abigail s side of the family JA brother s died of it as did one of his sons One son read the law with Daniel Webster One of the things I observed in the book was both John and Louisa were prodigious readers and preferred to stay home and read I noticed Unger pointed out that reading was considered a method of education in those days I found this to be a most enjoyable book I learned so much from it about Adams his family and general history of the time Unger is a noted historian and an excellent writer Johnny Heller did a good job narrating the book
