Samuel Huntington Day!

Get some fireworks and set up the barbeque, because Monday is Samuel Huntington Day!

Samuel Huntington, as most savvy readers know, was the first President of the United States - sort of, anyway. He served while the Articles of Confederation were in effect, prior to the U.S. Constitution and the Presidency as it is now cast. A native of tiny Scotland, Connecticut, Samuel Huntington helped shape the founding of our nation as well as our state.
