John Adams was the second President of the United States. His terms in office were from 1797 to 1801, he served right after George Washington passed away. As a member of the First and Second Continental Congress along with Vice-President Thomas Jefferson they argued against Britian's Stamp Act. Adams as a diplomat in Europe during the Revolutionary War helped discuss and establish a proper peace treaty with Britian. He was another president with the honest title being named "Honest John" and there being an "Honest Abe". He was born Oct 30, 1735 and died July 4, 1826 of heart failure, along with Jefferson. This was exactly 5 decades after the Declaration of Independence was signed, especially by Adams himself.
Adams was the first President to live in the White House, as it either wasn't finished being built or it wasn't even started during Washington's presidency.
