John Quincy Adams, like his father and Benjamin Franklin would like to see slavery abolished but was willing to compromise in order to unite the colonies into one nation. As Adams grew older, he and his friends became more abhorrent of slavery and began to actively seek ways to abolish it by federal law if states would not abolish it voluntarily. Andrew Jackson, on the other hand, grew up in a slave-owning society and was happy to take advantage of slave labor to further his own goals in life. He believed that states had the right to allow slavery and fought any federal attempt to restrict it in the states that wanted it.

John Adams, our first Vice President and second President, was a lifelong opponent of slavery. Even though he opposed the system of slavery, he did not oppose removing Jefferson's condemnation of slavery in the original draft of the Declaration of Independence. He felt uniting the colonies for independence was more important at that time, than causing the Continental Congress to debate the issue of slavery. Abigail Adams was an abolitionist, but Adams took no public positions on slavery. As historian Richard Brookhiser commented, if Adams had ever made a public statement against slavery he never would have been elected president.

Congress attempted to stop discussion on the slavery issue after they were flooded by over 100,000 petitions urging the abolition of slavery in the 1830's. In 1836, they passed a resolution that banned the discussion of these petitions and enforced the ban in 1839, 1841 and 1843. However, John Quincy Adams, who believed this was unfair, came up with creative methods of bringing the debate up on the floor anyway.

The United States election of 1824 deals with the issue of "corrupt bargain". The race was between Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, and Henry Clay. Quincy Adams bribed Clay with a cabinet position if Clay alters the electoral votes, which led to Jackson's fall.
