Look's pretty staged to me. Although, in England, we don`t (well, I havent) learned about American history.

The Articles also fail to mention the United States as a "nation" or establish a "government", something the American Constitution ratifies. So in reality John Hanson literally presided over an unofficial government, that by 1787 had no real power under the Articles of Confederation. The Articles also left the "government" no efficient way to collect money from the states, something that is needed to keep any government going.

The Articles of Confederation were considered too weak by many people, and thus was replaced, and superseded by the American Constitution. Whether or not John Hanson was President of the Continental Congress or not has no bearing on him as a "President" as the government was redesigned in the American Constitution, making "President of the United States" a different office than that of President of the CC. Simply because the Articles defines the "United States of America" does not by proxy mean that he must then have been President of the US. And if this is what kids are taught in Europe than they are being taught wrong. Also, I would like to mention that it is within America's own right to acknowledge whom it wills as the first President of the United States, which it has since George Washington was unanimously elected the first President of the US. So Washington being first is nothing new, its been that way for hundreds of years.
