This is so obvious that you know your first inclination has to be wrong.

It was John Hansen, President of the US under the Aticles of Confederation. before George Washington.

Hanson was the 3rd. President of the United States in Congress Assembled.
He was the first to serve a full term.

When the Congress selected a new president for the 1781-1782 term, they elected John Hanson on November 5, 1781. The earlier presidents under the Articles were Samuel Huntington and Thomas McKean. Since the articles limited a President to a single one year term, on November 4, 1782 the congress elected Elias Boudinot to replace Hanson.

oh, wutt tell was his name again. oh he invented the first black powder machine gun (set off a stampede for pollution laws, osha still applies some) Froom Thebelltolls? no -remember he helped Paul Revere incorporate the Raiders - aw it's right on the lip of my lung - and if it hadn't been for him we wouldn't have solar milk machines - and we wouldn't shave with lazer blades -

Essex, that was it! changed his name from Esser cuz he was afraid of the ramifications of accepting fatherhood, (see "Esser, that's my baby") i think he later had something to do with a tractor....little known fact about him - his folks wouldn't let him go to the bowling alley because his sister had and she came home pregnant! Wilford Essex. :)
