John Adams 1776 stamp by RavenGaleSpencer John Adams 1776 stamp by RavenGaleSpencer
If there's any one famous person in history I hope I'm related to, it'd be John Adams. =P He, like me, was not one to mince words.

This quote is from the beginning of "1776," a musical with John Adams, Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson as the main characters, depicting the days leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4. It's definitely worth checking out. Being made in the 70's and two and a half hours long, it does get a little slow in places, but it's got some very funny quotes--a lot of them historically accurate. And it really gave me a feel for what the founding fathers went through to make us a free country unlike any history textbook ever has.

(Forgive the Youtube-quality picture. :P)

I am actually a direct descendent of Adams :3 I'm technically one of his cousins. Because I am directly related to John and Priscilla Alden who were pilgrims on the mayflower...and she was directly related to his...father?

Idk it's all mapped out in a book somewhere with my grandparents names on it (starts digging through bookshelf)

If you don't have a Membership, then the best way to show images is with good old-fashioned html. Just copy/paste this: <img src="http: //fc00.deviantart.net/fs49/f/2009/196/c/5/John_Adams_1776_stamp_by_AbdhitanMireen.gif"> Except take the space out after the colon.
