Our final part of John Adams Focuses On John played by Paul Giamatti who in his final years has been writing back and forth to Thomas Jefferson. Sadly in 1818 Abigail played by Laura Linney dies of natural causes. Finally at the very end of the Mini-Series John Dies on July 4th 1826 the 50th anniversary of the signing of The Declaration Of Independence. This is an excellent mini-series and I recommend this mini-series and in fact this is the only Mini-series I will sit down and watch all the way through. Definitely check this out.

Not Rated.
