John Adams was the second president of the United States of America, serving from 1797 to 1801.

Background[edit | edit source]

He is mentioned in the National Archives' pop quiz terminals. There is also a protectron of the same name stationed at the National Archives. Its job was to play the role of John Adams in Declaration-signing re-enactments, along with performing security functions.

John Adams is mentioned on the placard outside of the Old State House in Boston,[1] where it reads:

"Built in 1713, the Old State House is the oldest public building in Boston. During the years before the Revolutionary War, this building was a hotbed for the ideas and ideals that would result in revolution. It was here that John Adams said, "the child Independence was born." In 1770, right outside its doors, the Boston Massacre took place where five American colonistIn-game spelling died inciting rage against the British occupation. The Old State House was the seat of Massachusetts government until the New State House was constructed in 1798."

While entering the Quincy ruins, Curie will question if there is a monument to Adams in the area, due to it being his birthplace.[2]

The codebreaker exam at the Pioneer Scout camp lists Adams as an incorrect answer to which founding father invented a disk cipher later used by the U.S. Army.[3]

John Adams is mentioned in Fallout 3, Fallout 4 and the Fallout 76 update Wild Appalachia.
