As the first Vice President of the country and the second President of America (following the much beloved George Washington), John Adams had very big shoes to fill, so to speak. And this was the case, indeed. However, while John Adams was generally not liked during his term, his legacy made a more positive note during the contemporary times.

Adams came to prominence because of his involvement during the Revolutionary War. He was a Massachusetts delegate during the Continental Congress and he was among the delegates who had a hand at persuading the Congress to carry out the Declaration of Independence, which was later drafted by Thomas Jefferson. These made him a solid candidate for vice presidency, which he won twice during Washington’s term. During this presidential campaign, he was opposed by Jefferson. He won the presidency with a very small margin (71 votes against Jefferson’s 68).

Adams presidency is notable for a number of accomplishments, such as the Alien and Sedation Acts and the building of the US Navy. Generally, however, Adams accomplishments during the Revolutionary War had more weight than his actions as president, at least during his time. The Alien and Sedation Acts, for instance, was seen a bold move to repel foreign agents that threaten to penetrate the country. However, when Jefferson succeeded him, he repelled the act since he saw it as unconstitutional. Adams also notably ended the Quasi War with France, although it was a war he started in the first place. He was also notorious for acting out on his own; naturally, this earned him the ire of many statesmen, particularly American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.

Still, his greatest accomplishment was his decision to follow the path paved by Washington. He maintained the stance on neutrality and the focus on foreign policy as a means to strengthen the country’s global position.
