Lawyer, statesman, diplomat…John Adams has an accomplished resume. Although he wasn’t the first President of the United States, he was the second…and that isn’t so bad, right?
Well, someone definitely thought so.
Even though John’s face isn’t on any American money (no money), he doesn’t have any sports teams named after him (no teams), and his wife probably has a larger fanbase than he does, some Super-PAC still decided he was worth kidnapping. They’ve brought him to 2012, along with five other Founding Fathers, in the hope of getting assistance in the upcoming election.
I pity the fool that tries to get stubborn John Adams to do something he doesn’t want to do. Adams put his foot down and refused to help the same people that were paying his per diem. I’m sure you can imagine how that went.
It’s been 211 years since John served his term and the years haven’t been kind. John wakes up every morning to grind the beans of life at a local Chicago coffee shop. He’s forced to babysit the, let’s face it, more childish Founding Fathers. And to top it all off, he’s falling for this girl that isn’t Abigail Adams, but is Abby (a.k.a. Maker of Enhanced Science Fiction Dioramas).
I Made of America tells the story of John Adams, his fellow Founding Fathers, and everything they’re getting up to in 2012 Chicago. You could Facebook or Tweet John to see what he’s up to right now. But, if I were you, I’d start at the very beginning….
