John Adams

Honest, Forthright, Pretinacious
John Adams, a man whose greatest loves were family and farming, understood he was a branch on a tree planted by his forebearers, which rooted in soil enriched by the Protestant Reformation, a love of liberty, and respect for law, order, and hard work. When the mother country began substituting tyranny, abandoning centuries of legal precedent, and issuing demands for taxation without jurisdiction, Adams took up his pen, loosened his sharp tongue, and went to war in defense of his sacred trusts. Evaluating John Adams without considering his sense of history and right would be to describe the Alps without mentioning the Matterhorn.
