Ummm....no. But good try.

  1. Actually, he was right, if by "President" one means "whoever/whatever is in charge". There is no possible excuse for that image not being in the public domain. (Even more depressing thought: perhaps it is PD, but the textbook publishers couldn't figure that out.)

  2. Well, it does get a bit confusing. Prior to the Constitution there was the position of President of the Continental Congress. The first person to serve in that role was Peyton Randolph, although that was in 1774, and it wasn't until John Hanson was the President that the Articles of Confederation were ratified in 1781.
    This has led some historians to call Hanson the first President, an argument that was also made on an episode of Webster, although '80's sitcoms are notoriously unreliable sources of information.
    Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to look into changing my name to "Getty Images".
