    1775/05/10-1775/05/24 Peyton Randolph - First President of the Second Continental Congress, first President after the American Revolution started

    1775/05/24-1777/10/29 John Hancock - President of the Second Continental Congress when it voted to declare independence from Great Britain on 1776/07/02 (that's not a typo)

    1781/11/05-1782/11/04 John Hanson - Third President of the Congress of the Confederation. Sometimes mistakenly cited as the first something, although he isn't really the first anything

    His first name was George. That's all I can tell you, because it's good for kids to do their own homework.
