Who was the first president of the United States?

George Washington of course. Right? Not according to the Norwich Historical Society in Norwich, Connecticut. Its members contend the nation's first president was actually Samuel Huntington, who was a leader of the Continental Congress during the Revolutionary War. The society contends that Huntington and nine other men were president before the Constitution came to be. As such, the society wants to build President Huntington his own presidential library. NPR's "All Things Considered" reports.
