The first appointed leader of the 13 colonies of America was John Hanson. He had the title President, however, he wasn't the president of the current constitution. However, he was the leader during the revolution, and was the president before Washington. I give you this information so you can call people wrong.

I guess when they say first president of the United States of America, they mean the president after they changed the Thirteen Colonies into the United States of America. So technically, the 13 colonies then wasnt even considered as the US of A yet. They didnt even call the army the US Army yet, they were called the Continental Army.

When Washington crossed the Delaware, he supposedly told his men, "Don't shift your balls men, you might tip the boat.", which of course meant those men had guts.
