About this item

[Library Edition Audiobook CD in vinyl case.] From a leading historian and Founding Fathers biographer comes a masterful treatment of a towering figure of America's formative years. He fought for Washington, served with Lincoln, lived with Franklin, studied with Jefferson, dined with Lafayette and Wellington, walked with Russia's czar, and talked with Britain's king; he shook hands with Dickens, taught at Harvard, and was American minister to six countries; he ended the War of 1812, freed the prisoners on the Amistad, served sixteen years in the House of Representatives, restored free speech in Congress, and led the antislavery movement -- and he was the sixth president of the United States. A towering figure in the formative years of the American nation, John Quincy Adams was the only son of a Founding Father president to become president himself, and the first one to serve in Congress after his term.
