The Tour

John Adams‘ time in the Netherlands is one of the most significant and forgotten about chapters of the American Revolutionary War. Leiden was undoubtedly his favorite city as his sons studied here and his dearest friends and allies lived here.

People forget that the first American Embassy was opened by Adams in The Hague and that the loan that he secured helped keep the infant American nation from plunging into chaos.
