Okay so I’m a history major, and I love history more then you could imagine.
What really pisses me off though, is that the common perception is that George Washington was the first president of the United States. Yes, George Washington was the first version of the President that we all know of.
But for the love of God, someone give John Hanson some credit. Hanson was the first president of the United States technically. In 1781 he was elected as the President of the Continental Congress. Aka, our form of government at the time. Meaning John Hanson was the first president of our country.
I hate to be that annoying person that rants about nothing, but this bothers me more than anything in the world. John Hanson deserves some credit. And people should educate themselves about history before they ignorantly follow the public school system.
