Amazing, I should have known that someone on Hubs would know their history! What about John Hensen though?
Thanks for your quick reply.
John Hanson was the first full-term President under the Articles of Confederation, but there were two earlier Congresses with presiding officers titled President. By that standard, Hanson was the 16th or 17th President.
Thank you Scott Gruber; much appreciated...

I indeed was led to believe it was john also. Primarily because he was the first elected for a one year term...
yes the first President under our Constitution was indeed George Washington; however, before that serving under our Articles of Confederation were quite a few "Presidents"...
