Synopsis

When John Quincy Adams-the sixty-three-year-old former president, U.S. senator, secretary of state, and diplomat-was elected to the House of Representatives by his Massachusetts neighbors, he embarked on a spectacular late-life career.

He became Congress’s most acerbic and influential critic of slavery as well as a tireless proponent for human freedoms and First Amendment rights. This remarkable congressional career utterly transformed him, the public’s perception of him, and his legacy-in many ways redeeming his failed presidency. Mr. Adams’s Last Crusade renders an insightful portrait of a man who placed his country above politics.
