“When George Washington took office in 1789, he was heralded as the “Father of Our Country” and known throughout history as the first President of the United States. This was not exactly true however. Several men served as leaders of our country before Washington took office, both as Presidents of the Congress and then as Presidents of the United States under the Articles of Confederation, which proceeded the Constitution.”
