elected to the Continental Congress in 1779 when then Articles of Confederation,

Unfortunately the Articles of Confederation didn't work well and a new
Constitution was adopted. April 30 1789 and George Washington became the first US
president under the new constitution.
Here is a list of the presidents preceding George
