The REAL First President

George Washington was not the first President of the United States. The first President, John Hanson, was Maryland’s representative at the Continental Congress. On November 5, 1781, Hanson, who is considered a black man because of his Moorish background, was elected by the Constitutional Congress to the office of “President of the United States in Congress Assembled.” He served for one year and was followed by 6 other Presidents before Washington was elected.
