For many years, most people didn't think very highly of John Adams. He was regarded as a small man between the two giants, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

Today, this opinion is changing. Adams is increasingly honored for his many contributions to the cause of liberty. He helped draft the Declaration of Independence. He urged the appointment of George Washington to lead the Continental Army. He did valuable work in Europe to help the colonists in their struggle. And he served as the second president of the United States.

This is the story of an amazingly honorable man and the times that helped mold him.
