About John Quincy Adams, II

John Quincy Adams II (September 22, 1833 – August 14, 1894) was an American lawyer and politician, the grandson of president John Quincy Adams and the son of Charles Francis Adams. Adams graduated from Harvard in 1853, practiced law, and then established an experimental model farm near Quincy, Massachusetts. He was elected to the Massachusetts state legislature in 1866 as a Republican, but soon switched to the Democratic Party because of his disaffection with president Andrew Johnson's Reconstruction policies. He was nominated for governor of Massachusetts in 1868, 1869, and 1870, but was not elected. In 1872 he was nominated for vice-president, along with Charles O'Conor for president, by a faction of Democrats that refused to support Horace Greeley. After losing an election for lieutenant-governor in 1873, Adams refused most further involvement in politics, including an offer of a cabinet position from Grover Cleveland in 1892.
