John Hanson was a SWEDE! He was descended from those who settled the New Sweden colony in the the Philadephia area--as am I! We Swedish-Americans are proud of John Hanson.
Damned herring shuckers. ;~)

I am sorry Charles but he was not Sweden either. A lot of black history was changed and a lot of people got credit for stuff they did not do.
John was a black man who was Moorish. They have pic of him in the Moorish history books.
It just proved that blacks were here before the slaves were transported.
All we here about is the Spanish and the Indians.
He was unanimously decision made by all white congress...so he must not have been a slave
