After leaving the U.S. presidency, John Quincy Adams acted as defense lawyer for the forty-nine African passengers of La Amistad, a Spanish schooner which would have sold the men into slavery if not for their victorious 1839 revolt.

The men were transported back to Africa by supporters after the U.S. Supreme Court validated Adams' argument in United States v. The Amistad.
