1. The first governing body to convene was "The Stamp Act Congress" in New York City on October 7, 1765.

2. The second governing body to convene was the "The First Congressional Congress" in 1774 on September 5th in Philadelphia.

3. The third governing body to convene was The Second Congressional Congress" in May 10, 1775 in Philadelphia.

4. The United States Congress is the current governing body that first convened March 4, 1789. The Articles of the US Constitution were developed under this racist group.

It was at the Second Congressional Congress that the "Articles of Confederation' were drawn up ---in 1781. John Hanson was elected President of the Second Congressional Congress.

General George Washington

George Washington was really the 8th President of the United States! rather than the first President of the United States. In fact, the first President of the United States was one John Hanson. [/SIZE]He took office just as the Revolutionary War ending. Almost immediately, the troops demanded to be paid. As would be expected after any long war, there were no funds to meet the salaries. As a result, the soldiers threatened to overthrow the new government and put Washington on the throne as a monarch.

"...All the members of Congress ran for their lives, leaving Hanson as the only guy left running the government. He somehow managed to calm the troops down and hold the country together. If he had failed, the government would have fallen almost immediately and everyone would have been bowing to King Washington. In fact, Hanson sent 800 pounds of sterling siliver by his brother Samuel Hanson to George Washington to provide the troops with shoes. He only served two years, yet did quite a bit in that time frame.


Question: So who do you think appointed George Washington to be general of the troops?
Answer: President John
Our ancestors were in slavery during this timeline and were forbidden to read by law under penalty of death and knew their place; therefore, you know the oppressor doctored the books -- or tried to anyway.:D

The United States Constitution replaced The Articles of Confederation and George Washington replaced John Hansen as the First President of the United States of AmeriKKKa.

"...As the first President, Hanson had quite the shoes to fill. No one had ever been President and the role was poorly defined. His actions in office would set precedence for al future Presidents.

He took office just as the Revolutionary War ended. Almost immediately, the troops demanded to be paid. As would be expected after any long war, there were no funds to meet the salaries. As a result, the soldiers threatened to overthrow the new governmment and put Washington on the throne as a monarch.

All the members of Congress ra for their lives, leaving Hanson as the only guy left runing the government. He somehow managed to calm the troops down and hold the country together. If he had failed, the government would have fallen almost immediately and everyone would have been bowing to King Washington In fact, Hanson sent 800 pounds of sterling silver by his brother Samuel Hanson to George Washington to provide the troops with shoes.

Hanso, as President ordered all foreign troops off American soil, as well as the removal of all foreign flags. This was quite the feat, considering the fact that so many European countries had a stake in the United States since the days following Columbus.

Hanson established the Great Seal of the United States, which all Presidents have since been required to usse on all offical documents.

President Hanson also established the first Treasury Department, the first Secretay of War, and the first Foreign Affairs Department.

Lastly, he declared that the fourth Thursday of every November was to be Thanksgiving Day, which is still true today

The Articles of Confederation only allowed a Presient to serve a on year term during any three year period so Hanson actually accomplished quite a bit in such little time.

Si other Presidents were elected after him: Elias (1783), Thomas Mifflin (1784), Richard Henry Lee (1785), Nathan Gorman (1786), Arthur St. Clair (1787), and Cyrus Griffin (1788) - all prior to Washington taking office.

George Washington was definitely not the first President Of The United States. He was the first President of the United States under the Constitution we follow today..."
After Cyrus Griffin (1788) there was:
10th Thomas Jefferson (3rd + 7)
14th Andrew Jackson, Jr. (7th +7)
23rd Abraham Lincoln (16th + 7)
36th Warren Harding (29th + 7)
37th Calvin Coolidge (30th + 7)
41st Dwight David Eisenhouer (34th + 7)
51st Barack H. Obama (44th + 7)

John Hanson (circa 1791-1860)
On August 11, 1827, John Hanson arrived in Monrovia aboard the brig Doris. A former slave who had purchased his freedom, Hanson was thirty-six years old when he left Baltimore and immigrated to Liberia. Settling in Grand Bassa County, he engaged in commerce and in time joined the ranks of Liberia's influential merchant class. In December 1840, Hanson won election to the newly created Colonial Council, Liberia's first popularly elected legislative body. Seven years later, when the independent Republic of Liberia held its first elections, Hanson was one of two senators elected from Grand Bassa County. He served several terms in the Liberian Senate and took a keen interest in his nation's economic development. When Hanson died in 1860, President Stephen Allen Benson mourned him as "a faithful and patriotic servant" whose loss was "very severely felt in Liberia."
In this daguerreotype, the bespectacled Senator Hanson appears much as he does in the watercolor rendering of the Liberian Senate.

Elias Boudinot (ca. 1804-1839)
Elias Boudinot was a formally educated Cherokee who became the editor of the Cherokee Phoenix,

Elias Boudinot
the first Native American newspaper in the United States. In the mid-1820s the Cherokee Nation was under enormous pressure from surrounding states, especially Georgia, to move to a territory west of the Mississippi River. Ultimately, the Cherokee Nation was divided, with the majority opposing removal, and a small but influential minority, including Boudinot, favoring removal. As an educator, an advocate of Cherokee acculturation, and editor of the Phoenix, Boudinot played a crucial role in Cherokee history during the decades preceding the Nation'sforced removal, often referred to as the Trail of Tears.
Elias Boudinot was born in Oothcaloga, in northwest Georgia, about 1804. He was called Gallegina, or the Buck, and was the eldest of nine children. His father, Oo-watie, was considered a progressive Cherokee. Oo-watie enrolled Gallegina and a younger son, Stand Watie, later a Confederate general, in a Moravian missionary school at Spring Place, in northwest Georgia. In 1817 young Gallegina was invited to attend the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions school in Cornwall, Connecticut. On his journey there, Gallegina was introduced to Elias Boudinot, the aged president of the American Bible Society, and adopted his name in deference and tribute....

Were There Black US Presidents?

By Kwaku Person-Lynn, Ph.D.
http://www.stewartsynopsis.com/Black_presidents.htm

...Gregory’s article states, "Hanson, as President, ordered all foreign troops off American soil, as well as the removal of all foreign flags. Hanson established the Great Seal of the United States, which all Presidents have since been required to use on all official documents. He declared that the fourth Thursday of every November was to be Thanksgiving Day, which is still true today." One variable someone did not clearly think through, America was not going to select a black president during the heart of the enslavement period.

There was a John Hanson. He was the ninth president of the Continental Congress overall, and the first president of the Continental Congress to serve a full term after ratification of the Articles of Confederation. Some refer to him as the third president, but that was during the Second Continental Congress. He was Caucasian.

Around 1881, after the US Congress was formed, there was a black John Hanson. He was a senator from Grand Bassa County, Liberia, America’s only Afrikan colony. He advocated for enslaved Afrikans to be sent to Liberia. This is where Gregory, a long time activist, had some confusion. Senator Hanson is the photograph Gregory mistakenly displays on his website.
