John Adams was a great proponent of the no taxation without representation proclamation. He was a devout Christian and delved into his life with the Holy Spirit. God had a great duty for John in the history and development of America.
John Adams was born on October 30, 1735 in Quincy, Massachusetts. His father’s name was John Adams as well, his profession was to deal with political matters in the town, and also to serve in the militia. John Adams’s mothers name was Susanna Boylston Adams. Susanna’s priorities were to focus and to base her family upon Christ’s truth, and to be devoted to her family.
John had been provided a swell education through all of his years of school. When he graduated grade school in 1746, he went to Harvard College. During the years that he spent there he met a wonderful woman that brought out the best in him, her name was Abigail. John graduated college in 1755. He had no idea where to start his independent life, but he finally decided on becoming a school-master. In this career he had the opportunity to meet many lawyers. John debated, and changed his job from the school- master to a lawyer.
On his way to work John would stop at Abigail’s house. Abigail was the youngest daughter of Reverend William Smith.
