While our new nation was suffering attacks from both within and without, John Adams had a vision of a nation of liberty and justice for all. He guided his peers--General George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson--in setting the values and agenda for a glorious, free America. Adams and his wife Abigail refined these ambitious democratic ideals, and their partnership became one of the most moving love stories in American history.

Great acting

Be sure to watch it with the on-screen historical guide turn on. Lots of interesting facts about the times and the persons as they appear on screen. Looking forward to watching the rest of the series.

John Adams. Disc 1

Excellent documentary; a bit graphic at times for the sensitive (war scene, small pox inoculation, tar & feathering)
