President John Hanson was the Nations first President under the original United States Constitution that patriots fought and died for - the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union.The term "President of the United States in Congress Assembled" under the nations first government is used today when the President of the United States of America is present with a full Congress. President Hanson never presided over the Continental Congress I or II - he presided as the Nations first President of the United States of America after the Continental Congress was dissolved on March 1, 1781. His duties as President were independent of the Congress as the Office of the President was created and spelled out in the Articles. The Office of the President of the United States never intended to be the "Executive Office of the President" that was created in 1939 or "commander-in-chief" of the US military, but these additions were added later in the second adopted constitution and after Washington was President with the EXOP in 1939. John Hanson was truly our Nation's first President of the United States of America.
