John Adams (30 Oct 1745 – 4 Jul 1826)
Unitarian president of the United States and, according to Thomas Jefferson, the “ablest advocate and champion” of American Independence, who died the same day as Thomas Jefferson, July 4 1826, fifty years to the day after the signing of their Declaration of Independence. It was John Adams who nominated George Washington to command the Continental Army, and who nominated Jefferson to write the Declaration of Independence.
