John Hanson 1781 AD
The photo above is of John Hanson. It is said that in 1779 he was elected as a delegate to the Continental Congress after serving many roles for the Patriot cause that was active in the state of Maryland. In November of 1781, he was elected as President of the Continental Congress and became the first president to serve a one-year term under provisions of the Articles of Confederation. Although our History tells us that George Washington was the first president under the US Constitution, many believe that Mr. Hanson was the first holder of the Office. Thoughts.
What do you think about this B.O.?
