Author's Statement


Why did I write this book? I was taught that George Washington was our first President until one day I was walking my dog and happened to start up a conversation with someone and the topic turned to early American Presidents. The fellow I was talking with said that there were Presidents before George Washington. I was not sure of what I heard, so I defended what I was taught and kindly walked away.


Weeks went by and while listening to a radio station, it was mentioned again that there were Presidents before George Washington. After hearing this, I decided to look into this subject and became motivated to inform others about the Presidents before George Washington who have been overlooked for one reason or another.


I also wanted to bring more insight into American history from the time of the Pilgrims to today. I had many questions to answer and information to reveal to my readers. For example, what were the other reasons why the Pilgrims came to America and what was the voyage like? Other questions I was able to answer was what was the significance of Mayflower Compact and what did it actually say? Was the first Thanksgiving in November? What was Colonial life like? Why was the Biblical death penalty used on animals and humans? White Slaves in America? Who was the first President of the United Colonies? What two Presidents served the shortest terms? Who was the only American President ever to be held as a prisoner of war in another country? What President was born in a foreign country? What were the many reasons for the Revolutionary War? What was one of the main reasons for the Revolutionary War? Who else rode with Paul Revere? What was in the full text of the Declaration of Independence? What was the first Constitution? What was the full text of the first Constitution? Who was the first President of the United States of America? Who helped the United States of America defeat Great Britain? Did the United States of America need a revised or second Constitution? And how many Presidents did America have before George Washington?
