The British surrendered in 1781. Washington was inaugurated in 1789.

Someone had to run things in between.


Wouldn't these guys be governors?

I don't think so, they presided over the Confederation.

"the United States continually had functioning governments from as early as September 5, 1774 and operated as a confederated nation from as early as July 4, 1776. During that nearly fifteen year interval, Congress—first the Continental Congress and then later the Confederation Congress—was always moderated by a duly elected president."
