John Quincy Adams Inaugural Address - 03/04/1825 - Read by Carl Malamud
My Fellow Americans: The Inaugural Addresses of the U.S. Presidents
John Quincy Adams delivered his inaugural address on March 4th, 1825. Read by Carl Malamud (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Malamud), president and founder of Public.Resource.Org. Like his father, John Adams, JQA served a single term. This presidential election saw four different candidates run, including Henry Clay (one of the front-runners who later supported JQA’s run) and Andrew Jackson (who called Clay’s support a “corrupt bargain” after Clay was named Secretary of Sate). JQA would lose his 2nd run to Andrew Jackson, the first president not be a Founding Father, or related to one. The cover art is an 1858 portrait of John Quincy Adams by George Peter Alexander Healy.

John Quincy Adams, our 6th President, was elected president despite losing both the popular and electoral vote. He was elected by the House of Representatives. John Quincy Adams was the son of 2nd president John Adams. As Secretary of State, Adams negotiated the Adams-Onís Treaty, which allowed the U.S. to acquire Florida. Adams was not a fan of being president, and had lots of drama and friction with Andrew Jackson, but we don't want to give away all of the info in the description because we want you to listen. Enjoy!
