Foreign Events of John Q. Adams
John Quincy Adams' Presidency was characterized by a lack of events. The world was peaceful: the monarchy was restored in France, and the parliament watched over England. The United States was more occupied with the growing sectionalism at home, and except for the Panama Congress where the nations of the Americas met with the British about trade in the West Indies, the President did not pay much attention to foreign affairs of the nation.
