The Adams Legacy: 

A man of grumpy exterior and assurance of manner, he was known to supreme judgments of his political opponents. Before Woodrow Wilson, he was the famous scholar in politics. His components voted him to congress from 1830. He expired in the House of Representatives on 23rd, 1848. “This is the last of earth. I am content.”

Adams’s three sons, the youngest son Charles Francis Adams, minister of Britain, endured him. Charles Francis Adams abbreviated for publication significant sections of his father’s colossal diary, which negotiate over 60 years of his astonishing life. Charles Francis Bacon had four sons in which three eminent historians-Charles Francis Adams, Brooke Adams and Henry Adams kept on the customs of the Adams’ family. 


  • "Man wants but little here below 
  • Nor wants that little long," 
  • 'Tis not with me exactly so; 
  • But 'tis so in the song. 
  • My wants are many, and, if told, 
  • Would muster many a score; 
  • And were each wish a mint of gold, 
  • I still should long for more.” 
  • The Wants of Man 

Adams expired in the Capitol Building, Washington; D.C. his funeral was placed near the  at Quincy Massachusetts in the United First Parish Church.
