the President of the United States
Etymology: From président, from praesidens (accusative: praesidentem). The Latin word is the substantivized present active participle of the verb praesideo. The verb is composed from prae and sedeo. The original meaning of the verb is 'to sit before' in the sense of presiding at a meeting. A secondary meaning of the verb is 'to command, to govern'. So praesidens means 'the presiding one on a meeting' or 'governor, commander'.

The President of the United States is commander-in-chief of the army, navy, and militia, called into service.

In his capacity of chief magistrate of the Union, Congress has also invested the President with many administrative functions relating to military affairs; and for the performance of the latter duties the secretary of the department of war has been made his minister, upon matters connected with matériel, accounts, returns, the support of troops, and the raising of troops.
