As an former President, John Quincy Adams defended the African slaves from Sierra Leone in the famous Amistad case (1841-42) before the Supreme Court.This drama was depicted in the recent movie "Amistad" (friendship).

His State of The Union addresses of 1825, 1826, 1827 and 1828 are indeed a slice of important American history by this remarkable early American President. A Collector's Edition.
