    John Adams, our second president and the father of our sixth president, made two very important decisions that had a major impact on our country. One was his nomination of George Washington as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army; the second was his appointment of Thomas Jefferson to write the Declaration of Independence.

    What three reasons did Adams give Jefferson why Jefferson should write the Declaration of Independence instead of Adams?

    One was that nobody liked Adams because he was pompous.

    Would assume #1 would be Jefferson being from Virginia and Adams from Massachusetts.

    Who would want yankees to write it when good slave-holding southerners were available to write "All men are created equal."
