William J. Cooper, Author Of The Lost Founding Father: John Quincy Adams And The Transformation Of American Politics Chats On DrAlvin.Com

Click Here To Listen William Cooper Why has John Quincy Adams been largely written out of American history when he is, in fact, our lost Founding Father?

Aware of this reputation yet [...]
