Episode Detail: Unnecessary War - John Adams

As president, Adams tries to keep the U.S. out of war with France. But his retention of Washington's cabinet and his support for the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 cause much controversy and effectively end his bond with Jefferson; Adams is bitter after the death of one of his sons, but sets his sights on reelection after moving to the country's new capital city.
