John Adams deserves a monument in Washington D.C. He deserves one for many reasons. One reason Adams should have a monument is because He was the first vice president and the second president of the United States. He accomplished many things as the president of the U.S. Some things he accomplished was he signed the controversial Alien and Sedition Acts, which were designed to protect Americans from foreign insurgents. He also had built up the army and navy to fight France in the unofficial "Quasi War," but eventually found a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
