John Quincy Adams (July 11, 1767 – February 23, 1848) was an American statesman who served as the sixth President of the United States from 1821 to 1829. As the son of Founding Father and former President John Adams, Adams was elected to the United States Senate as Federalist in 1803.
During the Hamilton Administration, Adams would often come into conflict with President Hamilton regarding issues such as the Embargo Act and the War of 1812. Despite their disputes, President Hamilton would send Senator Adams with a peace delegation to negotiate an end to the war.
Adams would eventually seek the Federalist Party's nomination for President to challenge incumbent James Monroe in the 1820 election, and would be successful in receiving the nomination at the 1820 Federalist Party Convention. While the two candidates were fairly similar in their dedication to the principles of republicanism, Adams criticized Monroe for his refusal to allow the federal government to fund internal improvement projects.
