Daniel Mallock grew up in within walking distance of the birthplaces of John Hancock, John Adams, and John Quincy Adams. As he grew up he spent many afternoons riding his bicycle to John and Abigail’s home, Peace field. He sat on the stone wall in front of the great house to think and dream. This was the beginning of his lifelong appreciation and study of Adams, Jefferson, and the founding generation, and of his love for American history.
The author’s interest in Adams and his great colleague/friend/rival Thomas Jefferson never diminished. He (the author) learned and read as much as he could. His learning pursuits took him across the country and back.
Now based in the great state of Ohio, Mallock continues his studies and has a new project in the works. The new project is about America’s greatest crisis (other than that of the current moment), the Civil War and other existential crises prominent then that continue on to today.
