John Adams, second President of the United States, was an imperfect, burdened, yet ever-striving man. In him we recognize the desire to be something more, the concerns about what others might see in us, the struggle for balance between our personal opinions and our public persona. Throughout his life, Adams faced many challenging situations, but perhaps what is even more impressive than how he tackled these issues, or his list of accomplishments, is his humanity.
It was President Adams who finally, in 1799, pardoned David Bradford for his role in the Whiskey Rebellion.
Adams will be portrayed by Peyton Dixon, an interpreter with over a decade’s experience. In 2004 Dixon was captured by the spirit of both the well-known and the everyday man of the eighteenth century – trying desperately to understand and make their place in new, exciting, and frightening world. He was particularly fascinated and impressed by the powerful yet (at the time) mostly unsung John Adams.
