Are you talking about the time before George Washington with the actual official existence of the title "President" ? He served from  1789 to 1797. We also became independent in 1776. There's 13 years gab from 1776 to 1789 where our founding father sat in charge as actual president.

Your answer is whether President of the Continental congress.

Peyton Randolph September 5 1774 - October 22 1774 (resigned)


President of the United States (in term of congress)

Samuel Huntington March 2 1781 - July 1781 (resigned as well)

Otherwise ! I don't know the answer!

The answer I was looking for was Peyton Randolph. I tired to word the question to reflect the first person titled president in the US government. I had a difficult time figuring out how to word it not giving away the fact that there were up to 15 presidents prior to George Washington, However none of them actually held the office of President of the United States.
