High History / Part XXXVIII / The Navy's Father & The Peace Field

3 months ago

He was the Father of The Navy and the leading voice in the war for independence, but deep down, he was a peace-loving hippie. He loved peace so much he referred to his diplomatic notes from Europe as his Peace Journal and he named his farm Peace Field.

What did he grow in his Peace Field? #Hemp, of course. He said:

Hemp is a Plant of great Importance in the Arts.

He Knew that if you wanted Good Hemp, you had to physically assault and ridicule it. He added:

When it has been well beaten, it must be heckled, or passed thro a toothed Instrument…to seperate the shorter Tow, from that which is fit to be spun.

So Who Was Father of The Navy ?

He is John Adams (October 30, 1735 – July 4, 1826). He was an statesman, attorney, diplomat, writer, Founding Father, a leader of the American Revolution that achieved independence from Great Britain, the First Vice President and the second POTUS (President of the United States) from 1797 to 1801.

Feel free to enjoy the below video to know some fast and fun fact

about John Adams!

Adams & Hemp

  • He was a Hemphead, a huge proponent of hemp and wrote about its uses and intricate cultivation process. He wrote :
..and Manufactories, as it furnishes a great Variety of Threads, Cloths, and Cordage.
  • What makes his love of hemp a bit more intriguing, however, is an excerpt from a column he wrote in Boston Evening-Posts (1763) about the advantages of growing hemp as a multipurpose crop. Adams wrote:
Seems to me if grate Men don’t leeve off writing pollyticks, breaking Heads, boxing Ears, ringing Noses and kicking Breeches, we shall by and by want a world of Hemp more for our own consumshon.

  • While that almost seems to suggest a recreational appreciation for cannabis, an annotated version of this postscript indicates that he was referring to the use of Hemp to Create Rope, that was used to Hang Men, not to smoke for pleasure. I found actually zero evidence that Adams Smoked Marijuana, but when I find, I will let you know!

Thank you for letting us know this great historic personality ..

Thanks for the video, good job.

Thanks for the info my friend, though I must admit, it is hard for me to imagine how a dude with such a haircut would ever grind any of his plants unless is to make some rope.

Good piece of history nevertheless, thanks for sharing and for the effort!
