Who Was Really Our First President? A Lost Hero

Collector: Ann V.

Three lessons in the series “Lost Heroes of America” unit module send young historians on a quest to determine who was the first president of the United States. To find clues, scholars watch a short video that provides background on how the Articles of Confederation defined the role of the president and research primary sources about issues the Second Continental Congress faced. They also investigate the notion that the initial leader of the nation was not George Washington but the man who led the “Congress Assembled.”
