The next year, he composed his Violin Concerto for American violinist Jorja Fleezanis. Lasting a little more than half an hour, this work is also in three movements: a "long extended rhapsody for the violin" is followed by a slow chaconne titled "Body through which the dream flows", a phrase from a poem by Robert Haas , and the piece ends with an energetic toccare.
In , he completed I Was Looking at the Ceiling and Then I Saw the Sky , a stage piece with libretto by poet June Jordan and staging by Peter Sellars.
Inspired by musicals, Adams referred to the piece as a "songplay in two acts". Hallelujah Junction is a three-movement composition for two piano , which employs variations of a repeated two-note rhythm.
The intervals between the notes remain the same through much of the piece. Adams used the same phrase for the title of his memoir.
After the September 11, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center , the New York Philharmonic commissioned Adams to write a memorial piece for the victims of the attacks.
The resulting piece, On the Transmigration of Souls , was premiered around the first anniversary of the attacks. On the Transmigration of Souls is scored for orchestra , chorus , and children's choir , accompanied by taped readings of the names of the victims mixed with the sounds of the city.
Commissioned by the San Francisco Symphony,   Adams' orchestral piece My Father Knew Charles Ives is cast in three movements: "Concord", "The Lake", and "The Mountain".
Though his father did not actually know American composer Charles Ives , Adams saw many similarities between the two men's lives and between their lives and his own, including their love of small-town New England life and their unfulfilled musical dreams.
Written for the Los Angeles Philharmonic to celebrate the opening of Disney Hall in , The Dharma at Big Sur is a two-movement work for solo electric six-string violin and orchestra.
Adams wrote that with Dharma , he "wanted to compose a piece that embodied the feeling of being on the West Coast — literally standing on a precipice overlooking the geographic shelf with the ocean extending far out to the horizon…"  Inspired by the music of Lou Harrison ,  the piece calls for some instruments harp , piano , samplers to use just intonation , a tuning system in which intervals sound pure, rather than equal temperament , the common Western tuning system in which all intervals except the octave are impure.
Adams' third opera, Doctor Atomic , is about physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer , the Manhattan Project , and the creation and testing of the first atomic bomb.
The libretto of Doctor Atomic , written by Peter Sellars, draws on original source material, including personal memoirs, recorded interviews, technical manuals of nuclear physics, declassified government documents, and the poetry of the Bhagavad Gita , John Donne , Charles Baudelaire , and Muriel Rukeyser.
The opera takes place in June and July , mainly over the last few hours before the first atomic bomb explodes at the test site in New Mexico.
Characters include Oppenheimer and his wife Kitty , Edward Teller , General Leslie Groves , and Robert Wilson. Two years later, Adams extracted music from the opera to create the three-movement Doctor Atomic Symphony.
Adams' next opera, A Flowering Tree with libretto by Adams and Sellars, is based on a folktale from the Kannada language of southern India as translated by A.
Ramanujan about a young girl who discovers that she has the magic ability to transform into a flowering tree. The two-act opera was commissioned as part of the Vienna New Crowned Hope Festival to celebrate the th anniversary of Mozart 's birth.
As such, it has many parallels with Mozart's The Magic Flute , including its themes of "magic, transformation and the dawning of moral awareness.
Adams wrote three pieces for the St. Lawrence String Quartet : his First Quartet , his concerto for string quartet and orchestra, Absolute Jest , and his Second Quartet The work focuses on the final few weeks of the life of Jesus from the point of view of "the other Mary", Mary of Bethany sometimes mis-identified as Mary Magdalene , her sister Martha , and her brother, Lazarus.
Written for violinist Leila Josefowicz who frequently performed Adams' Violin Concerto and The Dharma at Big Sur , the work was inspired by the character Scheherazade from One Thousand and One Nights who, after being forced into marriage, recounts tales to her husband in order to delay her death.
Adams associated modern examples of suffering and injustice towards women around the world, with acts in Tahrir Square during the Egyptian Revolution of , Kabul , and comments from The Rush Limbaugh Show.
Adams' most recent opera, Girls of the Golden West , with a libretto by Sellars based on historical sources, is set in mining camps during the California Gold Rush of the s.
Sellars described the opera this way: "These true stories of the Forty-Niners [a name for people who took part in the Gold Rush] are overwhelming in their heroism, passion and cruelty, telling tales of racial conflicts, colorful and humorous exploits, political strife and struggles to build anew a life and to decide what it would mean to be American.
Adams won the election by a narrow margin, becoming the second president of the United States. During Adams's presidency, a war between the French and British was causing political difficulties for the United States.
Adams's administration focused its diplomatic efforts on France, whose government had suspended commercial relations. Adams sent three commissioners to France, but the French refused to negotiate unless the United States agreed to pay what amounted to a bribe.
When this became public knowledge, the nation broke out in favor of war. However, Adams did not call for a declaration of war, despite some naval hostilities.
By , this undeclared war had ended, and Adams had become significantly less popular with the public. He lost his re-election campaign in , with only a few less electoral votes than Jefferson, who became president.
On October 25, , five days before his 29th birthday, Adams married Abigail Smith , his third cousin. They had six children, Abigail , John Quincy , Susanna , Charles , Thomas Boylston and Elizabeth He then lost to Jefferson in the presidential election.
His cousin Samuel Adams was, like John Adams, a lynchpin of the American Revolution. John Quincy Adams , like his father, John Adams, served as U.
John Adams was born and raised in Braintree now in Quincy , Massachusetts. The eldest of the three sons of farmer and shoemaker Deacon John Adams, he was encouraged to aspire to the ministry and graduated from Harvard College He taught grammar school for three years before choosing law rather than the ministry as his career.
Adams was the eldest of the three sons of Deacon John Adams and Susanna Boylston of Braintree , Massachusetts.
His father was only a farmer and shoemaker, but the Adams family could trace its lineage back to the first generation of Puritan settlers in New England.

Peristiwa Pada Masa Kepresidenan [ sunting sunting sumber ] Adapun peristiwa pada masa kepresidenan, antara lain  : Terjadi peristiwa XYZ Affair : di mana tiga komisioner dikirim ke Prancis untuk menegosiasikan perdagangan dan melakukan perjanjian damai.
Pada 3 April Adams akhirnya membuka kongres yang beragendakan penolakan pihak urusan luar negeri Prancis, Talleyrand, yang ingin hanya akan menerima komisioner yang dikirim Amerika apabila permintaan hutang dikabulkan dan suap dibayarkan.
Amendemen ini menegaskan kekuatan hukum atas warga negara asing, dan membatasi seorang individu menuntut sebuah negara bagian.
Banyak bagian dari undang-undang ini bersifat pemaksaan dan pembatasan yang ketat pada pihak-pihak asing. Negara bagian Kentucky 16 November ; 22 November dan Virginia 24 Desember melayangkan protes secara resmi atas berlakunya Alien and Sedition Act dengan klaim sebagai tidak berdasar unconstitutional dan meminta agar diberikan hak istimewa dalam menentukan hukum yang mana akan diterapkan di negara bagian tersebut.
Hal ini dimulai ketika Prancis menahan kapal-kapal dagang Amerika. However, the French Navy had been sent not to the United States but to the West Indies to protect French interests there.
France, Adams believed, needed to commit itself more fully to the alliance. Vergennes responded that he would deal only with Franklin, who sent a letter back to Congress critical of Adams.
In mid, Adams traveled to the Dutch Republic. One of the few other existing republics at the time, Adams thought it might be sympathetic to the American cause.
Securing a Dutch loan could increase American independence from France and pressure Britain into peace. At first, Adams had no official status, but in July he was formally given permission to negotiate for a loan and took up residence in Amsterdam in August.
Adams was originally optimistic and greatly enjoyed the city, but soon became disappointed. The Dutch, fearing British retaliation, refused to meet Adams.
Before he had arrived, the British found out about secret aid the Dutch had sent to the Americans, the British authorized reprisals against their ships, which only increased their apprehension.
Word had also reached Europe of American battlefield defeats. After five months of not meeting with a single Dutch official, Adams in early pronounced Amsterdam "the capital of the reign of Mammon.
In the meantime, Adams thwarted an attempt by neutral European powers to mediate the war without consulting the United States.
The victory was in large part due to the assistance of the French Navy, which vindicated Adams's stand for increased naval assistance.
News of the American triumph at Yorktown convulsed Europe. In January , after recovering, Adams arrived at The Hague to demand that the States General of the Netherlands answer his petitions.
His efforts stalled, and he took his cause to the people, successfully capitalizing on popular pro-American sentiment to push the States General towards recognizing the U.
Several provinces began recognizing American independence. On April 19, the States General in The Hague formally recognized American independence and acknowledged Adams as ambassador.
In October, he negotiated with the Dutch a treaty of amity and commerce. After negotiating the loan with the Dutch, Adams was re-appointed as the American commissioner to negotiate the war-ending treaty, the Treaty of Paris.
In the final negotiations, securing fishing rights off Newfoundland and Cape Breton Island proved both very important and very difficult.
In response to very strict restrictions proposed by the British, Adams insisted that not only should American fishermen be allowed to travel as close to shore as desired, but that they should be allowed to cure their fish on the shores of Newfoundland.
Britain agreed, and the two sides worked out other provisions afterward. Vergennes was angered when he learned from Franklin of the American duplicity, but did not demand renegotiation, and was supposedly surprised at how much the Americans could extract.
The independent negotiations allowed the French to plead innocence to their Spanish allies, whose demands for Gibraltar might have caused significant problems.
Adams was appointed the first American ambassador to Great Britain in When a counterpart assumed that Adams had family in England, Adams replied, "Neither my father or mother, grandfather or grandmother, great grandfather or great grandmother, nor any other relation that I know of, or care a farthing for, has been in England these one hundred and fifty years; so that you see I have not one drop of blood in my veins but what is American.
After arriving in London from Paris, Adams had his first audience with King George III on June 1, which he meticulously recorded in a letter to Foreign Minister Jay the next day.
The pair's exchange was respectful; Adams promised to do all that he could to restore friendship and cordiality "between People who, tho Seperated [sic] by an Ocean and under different Governments have the Same Language, a Similar Religion and kindred Blood," and the King agreed to "receive with Pleasure, the Assurances of the friendly Dispositions of the United States.
Towards its end, he startled Adams by commenting that "There is an Opinion, among Some People, that you are not the most attached of all Your Countrymen, to the manners of France.
Adams was joined by Abigail while in London. Suffering the hostility of the King's courtiers, they escaped when they could by seeking out Richard Price , minister of Newington Green Unitarian Church and instigator of the debate over the Revolution within Britain.
Adams considered Sewall one of the war's casualties, and Sewall critiqued him as an ambassador:. His abilities are undoubtedly equal to the mechanical parts of his business as ambassador, but this is not enough.
He cannot dance, drink, game, flatter, promise, dress, swear with the gentlemen, and small talk and flirt with the ladies; in short, he has none of those essential arts or ornaments which constitute a courtier.
There are thousands who, with a tenth of his understanding and without a spark of his honesty, would distance him infinitely in any court in Europe.
While in London Adams wrote his three volume A Defense of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America. It was a response to those he had met in Europe who criticized the government systems of the American states.
Adams's tenure in Britain was complicated by both countries failing to follow their treaty obligations. The American states had been delinquent in paying debts owed to British merchants, and in response, the British refused to vacate forts in the northwest as promised.
Adams's attempts to resolve this dispute failed, and he was often frustrated by a lack of news of progress from home. He then asked Jay to be relieved;  in , he took his leave of George III, who engaged Adams in polite and formal conversation, promising to uphold his end of the treaty once America did the same.
On June 17, Adams arrived back in Massachusetts to a triumphant welcome. He returned to farming life in the months after. The nation's first presidential election was soon to take place.
Because George Washington was widely expected to win the presidency, many felt that the vice presidency should go to a northerner.
Although he made no public comments on the matter, Adams was the primary contender. The person with the most votes would be president and the second would become vice president.
As a result, Washington became the nation's first president , and Adams became its first vice president. Adams finished well ahead of all others except Washington, but was still offended by Washington receiving more than twice as many votes.
After finding out about the manipulation but not Hamilton's role in it, Adams wrote to Benjamin Rush asking whether "Is not my election to this office, in the dark and scurvy manner in which it was done, a curse rather than a blessing?
Although his term started on March 4, , Adams did not begin serving as Vice President of the United States until April 21, because he did not arrive in New York in time.
The sole constitutionally prescribed responsibility of the vice president is to preside over the Senate , where he can cast a tie-breaking vote.
Although the House agreed that the president should be addressed simply as "George Washington, President of the United States", the Senate debated the issue at some length.
Adams favored the adoption of the style of Highness as well as the title of Protector of Their [the United States'] Liberties for the president.
Adams said that the distinctions were necessary because the highest office of the United States must be marked with "dignity and splendor" to command respect.
He was widely derided for his combative nature and stubbornness, especially as he actively debated and lectured the senators.
Maclay became Adams's fiercest opponent and repeatedly expressed personal contempt for him in both public and private.
He likened Adams to "a monkey just put into breeches. President " would be used. Washington quietly expressed his displeasure with the fuss and rarely consulted Adams.
As vice president, Adams largely sided with the Washington administration and the emerging Federalist Party. He supported Washington's policies against opposition from anti-Federalists and Republicans.
He cast 29 tie-breaking votes , all in support of the administration, and more than any other vice president. In the Senate, Adams cast a tie-breaking vote against a last-minute motion to keep the capital in New York.
Adams played a minor role in politics as vice president. He attended few cabinet meetings, and the president sought his counsel infrequently.
Toward the end of his first term, he grew accustomed to assuming a marginal role, and rarely intervened in debate.
The essence of the whole will be that Dr. Franklin's electrical Rod smote the Earth and out sprung General Washington. That Franklin electrified him with his Rod — and henceforth these two conducted all the Policy, Negotiations, Legislatures and War.
His strongest challenger, George Clinton , had On July 14, , the French Revolution began. Republicans were jubilant. Adams at first expressed cautious optimism, but soon began denouncing the revolutionaries as barbarous and tyrannical.
When he returned in with a peace treaty on terms unfavorable to the United States, Adams urged Washington to sign it to prevent war.
Washington chose to do so, igniting protests and riots. He was accused of surrendering American honor to a tyrannical monarchy and of turning his back on the French Republic.
The election of was the first contested American presidential election. As in the previous two presidential elections, no candidates were put forward for voters to choose between in The Constitution provided for the selection of electors who would then choose a president.
In the remaining nine states, they were chosen by the state's legislature. Federalist members of Congress held an informal nominating caucus and named Adams and Thomas Pinckney as their candidates.
The practice of not campaigning for office would remain for many decades. As the campaign progressed, fears grew among Hamilton and his supporters that Adams was too vain, opinionated, unpredictable and stubborn to follow their directions.
He had remarked that Hamilton's economic program, centered around banks, would "swindle" the poor and unleash the "gangrene of avarice.
He coerced South Carolina Federalist electors, pledged to vote for " favorite son " Pinckney, to scatter their second votes among candidates other than Adams.
Hamilton's scheme was undone when several New England state electors heard of it and agreed not to vote for Pinckney. He made derogatory references to his womanizing, real or alleged, and slurred him as the " Creole bastard.
In the end, Adams won the presidency by a narrow margin, receiving 71 electoral votes to 68 for Jefferson, who became the vice president; Pinckney finished in third with 59 votes, and Burr came in fourth with The balance of the Electoral College votes were dispersed among nine other candidates.
Adams was sworn into office as the nation's second president on March 4, , by Chief Justice Oliver Ellsworth.
As president, he followed Washington's lead in using the presidency to exemplify republican values and civic virtue , and his service was free of scandal.
He ignored the political patronage and office seekers which other office holders utilized. Historians debate his decision to retain the members of Washington's cabinet in light of the cabinet's loyalty to Hamilton.
The "Hamiltonians who surround him," Jefferson soon remarked, "are only a little less hostile to him than to me.
Shortly after Adams was inaugurated, Hamilton sent him a detailed letter filled with policy suggestions for the new administration.
Adams dismissively ignored it. Historian Joseph Ellis writes that "[t]he Adams presidency was destined to be dominated by a single question of American policy to an extent seldom if ever encountered by any succeeding occupant of the office.
Hamilton and the Federalists favored the British monarchy against what they perceived to be the political and anti-religious radicalism of the French Revolution, while Jefferson and the Republicans, with their firm opposition to monarchy, strongly supported France.
Because of the Jay Treaty, the French saw America as Britain's junior partner and began seizing American merchant ships that were trading with the British.
Most Americans were still pro-French due to France's assistance during the Revolution, the perceived humiliation of the Jay Treaty, and their desire to support a republic against the British monarchy, and would not tolerate war with France.
On May 16, , Adams gave a speech to the House and Senate in which he called for increasing defense capabilities in case of war with France.
The speech was well received by the Federalists. Adams was depicted as an eagle holding an olive branch in one talon and the "emblems of defense" in the other.
The Republicans were outraged, for Adams not only had failed to express support for the cause of the French Republic but appeared to be calling for war against it.
Sentiments changed with the XYZ Affair. The peace commission that Adams appointed consisted of John Marshall , Charles Cotesworth Pinckney and Elbridge Gerry.
Letombe wrote to Paris stating that Jefferson had told him that it was in France's best interest to treat the American ministers civilly but "then drag out the negotiations at length" to arrive at most favorable solution.
According to Letombe, Jefferson called Adams "vain, suspicious, and stubborn. The diplomats were then met by three of Talleyrand's agents.
The French emissaries later code-named, X, Y, and Z refused to conduct negotiations unless the United States paid enormous bribes, one to Talleyrand personally, and another to the Republic of France.
News of the disastrous peace mission arrived in the form of a memorandum from Marshall on March 4, Adams, not wanting to incite violent impulses among the populace, announced that the mission had failed without providing details.
The Republicans frustrated the President's defense measures. Suspecting that he might be hiding material favorable to France, Republicans in the House, with the support of Federalists who had heard rumors of what was contained in the messages and were happy to assist the Republicans, voted overwhelmingly to demand that Adams release the papers.
Once they were released, the Republicans, according to Abigail, were "struck dumb. Among the general public, the effects were very different.
The affair substantially weakened popular American support of France. Adams reached the height of his popularity as many in the country called for full-scale war against the French.
Despite the XYZ Affair, Republican opposition persisted. Federalists accused the French and their associated immigrants of provoking civil unrest.
In an attempt to quell the outcry, the Federalists introduced, and the Congress passed, a series of laws collectively referred to as the Alien and Sedition Acts , which were signed by Adams in June All came within a period of two weeks, in what Jefferson called an "unguarded passion.
The Sedition Act made it a crime to publish "false, scandalous, and malicious writing" against the government or its officials.
He eventually agreed and signed the bills into law. The administration initiated fourteen or more indictments under the Sedition Act, as well as suits against five of the six most prominent Republican newspapers.
The majority of the legal actions began in and , and went to trial on the eve of the presidential election. Other historians have cited evidence that the Alien and Sedition Acts were rarely enforced, namely: 1 only 10 convictions under the Sedition Act have been identified; 2 Adams never signed a deportation order; and 3 the sources of expressed furor over the acts were Republicans.
The Acts allowed for prosecution of many who opposed the Federalists. Jefferson, disgusted by the acts, wrote nothing publicly but partnered with Madison to secretly draft the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions.
Jefferson, writing for Kentucky, wrote that states had the "natural right" to nullify any acts they deemed unconstitutional.
Writing to Madison, he speculated that as a last resort the states might have to "sever ourselves from the union we so much value.
Still, the acts Adams signed into law energized and unified the Republican Party while doing little to unite the Federalists.
In May , a French privateer captured a merchant vessel off of the New York Harbor. An increase in attacks on sea marked the beginning of the undeclared naval war known as the Quasi-War.
He pursued a strategy whereby America harassed French ships in an effort sufficient to stem the French assaults on American interests.
The prospect of a French invasion of the U. Congress appropriated money to complete three new frigates and to build additional ships, and authorized the raising of a provisional army.
It also passed the Alien and Sedition Acts, intended to frighten foreign agents out of the country and to stifle the attacks of Republican editors.
President Adams did not call for a declaration of war, but hostilities began at sea. At first, American shipping was almost defenseless against French privateers, but by armed merchantmen and U.
Despite several brilliant naval victories, war fever subsided. Word came to Adams that France also had no stomach for war and would receive an envoy with respect.
Long negotiations ended the quasi war.Ambassador to the Netherlands — Delegate, Second Continental Congress — Delegate, First Continental Congress The Constitution provided for the selection of electors who would then choose a president.
