This was the Boston Massacre that I was the lawyer in!
John Adams was known as the father of the U.S. Navy. The Navy started in the year of 1798. By the end of 1798, the Navy owned 14 vessels with more still under construction. As of today there is around 430 active vessels.
John Adams was the first ever Vice President of the United States. He was Vice President from 1789 to 1797 when George Washington was President. When it was time to pick a new president Washington got 69 votes while John Adams only got 34. He felt humiliated and thought of turning the office down. Instead he stayed and became president next election.
Based on these achievements in his life I believe that John Adams deserves a memorial. Sure he may not have been the best president, but look at all the things he has done. Without John Adams we wouldn't have a navy today. He was a very smart man and did very good things while in office. If others can have a memorial why can't he, he did just as much as the other presidents. Based off of these few reasons I believe John Adams deserves a memorial.
John Adams served as the defensive attorney for the eight British solders in the Boston Massacre. This trial happened in the year of 1770 and was a very serious matter. John Adams was mainly helped by Josiah Quincy in the defense. John Adams was successful in defending six out of the eight solders. These six solders were found innocent.
John Adams was a Harvard graduate and had a very good education. His father also graduated from Harvard.When he was 16 he received a scholar ship to go to Harvard. He attended this college at age 20 studying law. In 1758 he earned his masters degree.
