During John Quincy Adams' term, the Erie Canal Opened (1825) and in his post presidential period Adams became the only president elected to the US House. One key event during this time was his role in arguing before the Supreme Court to free the slave mutineers aboard the Amistad. He died after having a stroke on the floor of the US House on February 23, 1848. John Quincy Adams was not a casual man in any sense of the word and was always dressed in full formal dress with top hat and cane. Here he is portrayed as the man he was on all occasions. www.whitehouse.gov/about/presidents/johnquincyadams
