    Default Washington was NOT the "first president!"

    Historical Secrets

    History in Perspective


    As a research/writer I am sometimes amazed at the deceit, misinformation and plain ‘ol lies that are taught to us as being the truth in regards to history.

    “George Washington was the first President of the United States.” A statement that is believed by anyone in the world who has studied American History. From the smallest first grader to those who have graduated from the most expensive and prestigious Ivy League Collages, we all know for a fact that George Washington was the first President of the United States. Unfortunately, this is not the truth. Actually, John Hanson was the first President of the United States.* I find it ironic that the man we are taught “could not tell a lie” is himself the subject of one of the many lies that make up what we believe to be the history of our country.

    Thats one of the half -truths that float around the internet. The Us declared its independence in 1776. For many years,we operated as a loose confederation,with Hanson as the President. However,in time,we adopted a Constitution and became THE UNITED STATES. Washington was the first President .
    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out just how far one can go.

    What do you expect from Hollow Earth News? They are correct - it was in 1781, half a decade after our independence.
    Hanson was the first Prez, history revealed. Otherwise, why aren't we even informed of this other president? zg

    Robert Ripley, whose "Believe it or Not" used to run in the newspapers, circulated this bit of history 70 years ago.

    Default It reminds me of Mary Wells of Boston

    Many years ago I received a letter and photograph of what Ms Wells called a coin that had been made by Paul Revere and had been in her family for 200 or so years??

    Revere I believe had been a Tinker but never worked or made gold coins and the photograph was a jewlry medallion made in the image of a U.S. $20 Liberty coin (first designed in 1849) in a bezel which in no way looked like a real coin or something made in the colonial period but basically was a modern piece of jewlry.
    It was dated 1776 and a good guess would be that it was made around 1996 for the bicentennial and had in big bold letters United States of America!

    As in the case of Mr Hanson and wanting to have a little fun with Ms Wells (not the Mary Wells of singing fame), I wrote back to her and said, "I find your coin absolutely interesting and the most interesting aspect of it is that after extensive research I can find no mention of anyplace on the Earth in the year 1776 that had the name, United States of America."

    Let me correct myself.There were seven,including John Hancock and Richard Lee.
    If you want to see a real President that time and history has forgotten,you should check out Daid Atchinson.

    From Wikipedia -
    John Hanson - President of the United States in Congress Assembled

    Before the adoption of the Constitution in 1787, the states operated under the direction of the Continental Congress, although they remained in principle a confederation of independent states. Even after the adoption of the Articles of Confederation, there was no executive branch. Therefore the President of the Continental Congress, which was a position similar to a Prime Minister, was the highest authority; under the Articles, the position adopted the title President of the United States in Congress Assembled, and Hanson was the first presiding officer of the Congress to use that title when dealing with foreign governments, diplomats, or treaties. Congress had little authority beyond those powers, which had been specifically delegated to it by the states, and its weakness during this period led directly to a decline in influence and the 1787 Constitution, with a more robust federal model.



    Hanson's term as President of the United States in Congress Assembled, during this critical formation period, did have longstanding influence.
