Between disease, poverty, and war, the country was extremely lucky to come out the revolution with independence. Once gaining independence, the country was lucky to come out of the drafting session with any semblance of a working constitution. Egos, power struggles, and personal agendas nearly destroyed what would become the most unique republic ever created.
David McCullough's book explains these struggles in beautiful detail, all while telling Adam's personal journey. After finishing the book, the reader understands how difficult John Adam's life must have been, not only for him but also for his family. Independence came at a price.
