John Adams is one of the country’s Founding Fathers, and John Quincy Adams served as a link between the founding generation and the American Civil War. Both men heavily influenced the United States as Presidents, lawyers, and diplomats. But what were they like at home? On Father's Day, the tour of Adams National Historical Park focuses on a side of John and John Quincy Adams we rarely get to see – as fathers and family men. Seeing these Patriots as parents shines a whole new light on their influence to the nation.

Join us as we welcome the Poet Laureate of Boston, Danielle Legros Georges, to the Eustis Estate. Through the exploration of iconic and influential pieces of literature, Legros Georges asks audiences to consider the historic and evolving definition(s) of what makes one an American. Her talk begins with the question asked by Frenchman-turned-American Jean de Crèvecoeur in 1782, "What is an American?"
