The Choice for Revolution

John Adams was born in the American colonies, and grew up as a subject of Great Britain. Beginning in the 1760s, soon after he had finished his legal studies, a series of political events forced him to question Britain's rule, and think hard about the rights of American colonists.

Follow John Adams as he changed from a loyal colonist into a revolutionary leader.
