The Adams Memorial is a proposed United States presidential memorial
                                                                                              Adams Memorial (proposed)
to honor the 2nd President John Adams, his wife and prolific writer,
                                                                                       IUCN category V (protected landscape/seascape)
Abigail Adams, their son, the 6th President, John Quincy Adams, and
his wife, Louisa Catherine Adams and other members of the Adams
family, including John Q. and Louisa's son Charles Francis Adams, Sr.,
civil war diplomat, politician, and editor; and his sons Henry Adams
(noted historian, autobiographer) and Brooks Adams (academic).
On November 5, 2001, the United States Congress created the Adams
Memorial Foundation under Pub.L. 107-62 . The foundation is
authorized to construct a memorial on federal land in Washington, D.C.,
at no expense to the government. Once established the memorial would
presumably fall under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service.
