Our sixth President was the son of our second President. And although John Quincy Adams is considered "above average' as Presidents go, he is also considered one of the best Secretaries of State in the history of our country. In that role, he negotiated the Treaty of Ghent to end the War of 1812, along with a number of treaties that added territory to the United States. And, after losing the election of 1828 to Andrew Jackson, he was elected to Congress and served seventeen years in the House of Representatives.
