Patrick Henry (1736 - 1799) was the first president of the United States of America. Much of his presidency was spent dealing with the American Revolution, so very little happened under his leadership, although he is largely credited with the victory in the revolution and the creation of the United States. Most notably, he established friendly relations with France and Louisiana, likely leading to the American victory in the revolution.
