He became Congress’s most acerbic and influential critic of slavery as well as a tireless proponent for human freedoms and First Amendment rights. This remarkable congressional career utterly transformed him, the public’s perception of him, and his legacyin many ways redeeming his failed presidency. Mr. Adams’s Last Crusade renders an insightful portrait of a man who placed his country above politics.
