Unite or Die

Elected America's first VP, Adams is frustrated by his exclusion from Washington's inner circle. He also sees his friendship with Jefferson, the Secretary of State, strained by the British-French conflict. Though he's vilified for casting an unpopular swing vote in the Senate that ratifies a U.S./British treaty, Adams ends up being elected President in 1796.
