John Adams was an American politician and political philosopher and the 2nd President of the United States, past being the first Vice President of the United States for two terms. He was one of the most powerful Founding Fathers of the United States. As a representative of Congress in Europe, he was a major negotiator of the eventual peace treaty with Great Britain, and primarily responsible for obtaining significant loans from Amsterdam bankers. He encountered vicious attacks by the Jeffersonian Republicans, as well as the leading faction in his own Federalist Party led by his bitter enemy Alexander Hamilton. The major achievement of his presidency was his peaceful resolution of the Quasi-War in the face of Hamiltonian opposition.
