John Quincy Adams


John Quincy Adams, byname Old Man Eloquent, (July 11, 1767 — February 23, 1848), sixth president of the United States (1825–1829) and eldest son of President John Adams. In his pre-presidential years he was one of America’s greatest diplomats (formulating, among other things, the Monroe Doctrine), and in his post-presidential years (as a U.S. congressman, 1831–1848) he conducted a consistent and often dramatic fight against the expansion of slavery.
