"Heirs of an Honored Name: The Decline of the Adams Family and the Rise of Modern America
John and Abigail Adams founded a famous political family, but they would not witness its calamitous fall from grace. When John Quincy Adams died in 1848, so began the slow decline of the family’s political legacy. Discover an absorbing story of brilliant siblings, family strain, and how the burden of impossible expectations shaped the Adamses and, through them, American history.
