John Quincy Adams was President of the United States from 1825 to 1829. John Quincy Adams was considered to be one of the best Secretaries of State that the United States ever had, however he made a poor president as he would get mad at Congress and not negotiate with them on anything, he wanted all or nothing, consequently very little got accomplished during his administration. John Quincy was the first one term President since his father, John Adams. After his term as President, John Quincy served in the House of Representatives from the state of Massachusetts, the only President of the United States to do so after they were President. Adams suffered from depression during most of his life. John Quincy Adams began a journal or diary when he was 11 years old in 1779 and kept this diary faithfully until just shortly before his death in 1848. Since his father was the 2nd President of the United States and the family knew all of the Founding Fathers of the young nation, these diaries, which fill fifty volumes, are some of the best first hand information of the founding and beginning years of the early United States. John Quincy Adams collapsed on the House floor in 1848 of a brain aneurysm and died shortly thereafter. Picture #17 Famous People painting
