The Other "First" President: Samuel Huntington

Born July 16, 1731, Samuel Huntington was a signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation. He was also President of the 2nd Continental Congress when the Articles went into effect in March 1781.

A radical Change in the “Principles, Opinions, Sentiments and Affection of the People” was the real American Revolution of the 18th century. Are we witnessing the very early beginnings of a new radical change today? Maybe, but as Samuel Adams made clear, it will require our “utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude and perseverance.” #liberty #10thAmendment #nullify #libertarian #constitution https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/03/the-10th-amendment-movement-a-revolution-in-thought/
