John Quincy Adams was the sixth President of the United States. Adams was son of the President John Adams and Abigail Adams. Adams is best known as a diplomat who formed American's foreign policy in line with his deeply conservative and passionately nationalist commitment to America's republican values. Adams was elected a U.S. Representative from Massachusetts after exit office, the only president ever to do so, helping for the last 17 years of his life with far better success than he had achieved in the presidency. Adams properly predicted the dissolution of the Union on the issue, though the progression of bloody slave insurrections he foresaw never came to pass.
