That Time Again

Recommended Posts

Today is Groundhog Day.  Wonder if the little varmint saw his shadow.  And, speaking of shadows, it's also the beginning of Black History Month, a celebration that hovers in the shade of White History Year. People have started to voice disapproval of this annual observance but,  something is needed to rival the the 4th of July, a holiday which is the sole domain of white America.  So, let us remember a few of those who serve to fill us with black pride.

An interesting and little known fact that Black history month has brought to light via the hash tag below.  

 

 

 

WHO WAS THE FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? I'm sure that George Washington was your best guess. After all, no one else comes to mind.But think back to your history books — The United States declared its independence in 1776, yet Washington did not take office until April 30, 1789. So who was running the country during these initial years of this young country? It was the first eight U.S. Pr...esidents. In fact, the first President of the United States was one John Hanson. I know — John who? John Hanson, the first President of the United States. Don't go checking the encyclopedia for this guy's name (google him) — he is one of those great men that are lost to history. The new country was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation.This document was actually proposed on June 11, 1776, but not agreed upon by Congress until November 15,1777.Once the signing took place in 1781, a President was needed to run the country.John Hanson was chosen unanimously by Congress (which included George Washington.) ‪#‎BlackHistoryMonth‬ ‪#‎BlackFacts‬
