    The 2017 SAR Annual Conference on the American Revolution

    Event Location

    Event Date & Time

    The Adams Family
    and the American Revolution

    June 9-11, 2017

    2017 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of John Quincy Adams.


    John Adams famously wrote “I must study Politicks and War that my sons may have liberty to study Mathematicks and Philosophy. My sons ought to study Mathematicks and Philosophy … in order to give their Children a right to study Painting, Poetry, Musick.” The comment seems to describe the story of the family in the generations from John to Henry Adams. Yet the Adamses, whatever else they did, were political men and women. In 1821, an aging John Adams wrote his grandson George Washington Adams, an aspiring poet, that he must study politics, for “without some knowledge of it you will be always in confusion, blown about by every wind.” Politics were central to the story of the Adams family from the start, and at the foundation of the family’s politics was the American Revolution, a revolution that would create an American republic. With that in mind, the 2017 SAR Annual Conference proposes to explore the Adams family’s understanding of the nature, meaning, and significance of the American Revolution over the generations from John and Abigail to Henry and Brooks Adams. It will focus on the way their understanding of the American Revolution shaped their writings and their works from the Writs of Assistance Case in 1761 to Henry Adams’ death in the early 20th Century.
