Did You Know

Did you know that when John Adams took the oath of office, none of his family were present, not even his beloved Abigail?  

The nation at that time consisted of sixteen states.

Sandra Cox said...

Sandra Cox said...

Yes, unfortunately.

Sandra Cox said...

Great. Let us know:)

Birgit said...

I couldn't find anything except that his wife was ill and this...John Quincy Adams Adams earned the dubious distinction as the first president elected who had won neither the popular vote nor the vote in the Electoral College. Andrew Jackson got more votes in both cases. Adams prevailed when the House of Representatives settled the election....Scary
