General George Washington (1732-1799) was thefirst President of the United States of America under the USConstitution. He was elected in 1787 and again in 1792 andserved as… President from April 30,1789 until March 4, 1797 . The Hanson argument-- Sometimes, John Hanson is referred to as the first US president dueto his ancestors' success of convincing the Maryland Legislaturethat he was the first President to serve under the articles ofConfederation--- but that is NOT the same as the elected Presidentof the US. The Hanson Family's lobbying effort was so complete thatin 1903 Maryland included his statue, as one of two, allocated foreach state in the US Capitol's Statuary Hall. Although Hansonserved as President of the United States Congress Assembled, underthe Articles of Confederation, , this was very different fromthat of a modern-day U.S. Presidency. Moreover, Hanson was actuallythe third President of the United States in Congress Assembled. TheArticles of Confederation Presidency lineage as follows: . S amuel Huntington was thefirst President of the United States in Congress Assembled. Thiswas under the Articles of Confederation, March 1, 1781 to July 6,1781. .

The first fifteen states are the 13 original colonies plus Maine and Vermont. The thirteen original colonies were: Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island,… New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia
In fact by the words of the Framers all the colonies where together in the beginning of this great experiment the "United States of America" Delaware. Certainly meaning no dis…respect toward our comrades and fellow citizens in Delaware, it should be pointed out that technically there was no 'first' state, with other states following at a later time. The Constitution provided that it would take effect when nine states ratified it, so in a very real sense, all of those states became members of The United States at the same instant. Delaware certainly has the right to claim that it was the first to ratify the Constitution. (And of course without a first state, there could never have been the nine states required.) Using the above terminology it would be Pennsylvania. Why? on July 4th 1776 in Liberty hall in Philadelphia the Declaration of Independence was ratified. This being when the first official use of the United States of America then Pennsylvania would be first. If Oldest it would be Florida, due to Spanish exploration and settlement of Saint Augustine, the oldest city in North America and in the US.
