John Adams

October 30, 1735  – July 4, 1826

Up to this point, the entries here have been contemporary (20th century on) celebs.  It’s time to mix it up a bit.

John Adams was the 2nd President of the United States, the 1st Vice-President of the United States and a key figure in the American Revolutionary War, the creation of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.  He also served in Europe as the U.S. Ambassador to Holland and Great Britain. He was a busy dude. I could get into the details of his involvment in the aftermath of the Boston massacre or his lifelong friendship with fellow Founding Father, Thomas Jefferson, but I’d rather just say “go watch the HBO mini-series based on his life.” It does a far better job than I could.
