Who was the first president to assume the office of president?

In super-technical terms, George Washington was, but in reality he was the 8th president. The first President was actually John Hanson under the Articles of Confederation in 1781. But his presidency was downplayed because technically we were not the "United States of America" but he was still the first president because the Dec Of Ind declared us free of Britain, yet united the colonies, and so they became the United "States". But since it wasnt in writing, and because the Articles of Confederation werent such a success, people began to challenge this. And this is where we get "George Washington first president" from.
