The life of one of the USA's Founding Fathers, its second President, and his role in the nation's first 50 years.

Thomas Jefferson survives.
Near the end of the final installment, John Adams is seen chastising painter John Trumbull for the historical inaccuracy of the 12'x18' painting, "Declaration of Independence". Adams' overall reaction was accurately depicted. The error is that Adams is shown yelling at Trumbull that the signers were not all present at one time and did not sign en masse, while Trumbull pleads artistic license. In fact, Trumbull did not intend the painting to depict the *signing* of the Declaration, at all; but rather the June 28, 1776, presentation of the draft of the document to the Continental Congress by the drafting committee composed of Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Sherman and Livingston.
