ADAMS, Daniel, author, born in Townsend, Massachusetts, 29 September, 1778; died in Keene, New Hampshire, 8 June, 1864. He was graduated at Dartmouth College in 1797, studied medicine, and settled in Leominster to practice his profession. Here he published an oration on the death of Washington, and began the preparation of his schoolbooks, including the "Scholar's Arithmetic," "Grammar," and "Understanding Reading," which were issued from his own press. In 1806 he removed to Boston and opened a select school, and also edited the "Medical and Agricultural Register." He settled in Mount Vernon in 1818, resumed his practice, and revised his arithmetic, which was then published as "Adams's New Arithmetic." He also edited a newspaper called "The Telescope." In 1846 he settled in Keene, New Hampshire, where he spent the remainder of his life. He was the author of many schoolbooks, principally on mathematics. From 1838 till 1840 he served as a state senator, and he was for some time president of the New Hampshire Bible Society and also of the New Hampshire Medical Society.

In this powerful, historic work, Stan Klos unfolds the complex 15-year U.S.
Founding period revealing, for the first time, four distinctly different United
American Republics. This is history on a splendid scale -- a book about the not
quite unified American Colonies and States that would eventually form a fourth
republic, with only 11 states, the United States of America: We The
People. Click Here
