JOHN QUINCY ADAMS
Stars Douglas Campbell. Believing it to be in the public interest, the Massachusetts senator defies his party and supports the Embargo Bill of 1807, even though it appears ruinous to his state’s economy and his own finances. His stand results in loss of his Senate seat. Issues: freedom of the seas, free trade, the limits of partisanship, and social pressures of new technology.
