Overview
Lauded by contemporary critics as "the best and highest-rated series in the history of American public television," 'The Adams Chronicles' created a sensation when it debuted in 1976. Its vitality and historical integrity now prove timeless. This lavish series dramatizes four generations of Adamses and 150 years of American history from the birth of the Revolution through the Gilded Age. You meet John Adams—passionate revolutionary and second president; John Quincy Adams—proud son of a famous father and sixth president; Charles Francis Adams—skillful minister to Great Britain during the Civil War; historian Henry Adams; and railroad magnate Charles Francis Adams, Jr.

Going well beyond politics, this television masterpiece portrays these men as husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons, as well as leaders. Based on the family's personal diaries and correspondence, 'The Adams Chronicles' not only educates as a true historical epic, but also captivates as a fully human family saga.
