State of the Union

The first page of George Washington's very first State of the Union address (Library of Congress)

We’ll be setting the Tivo to record tonight’s State of the Union message while we attend the special talk by Kansas author Jim Hoy tonight. But if you’re going to watch the speech live, you may be interested in some of the past State of the Union addresses delivered by previous presidents.

C-Span offers a State of the Union archive with videos of all the State of the Union speeches by the last four presidents, along with a smattering of earlier videos (President Reagan’s final State of the Union, two of Gerald Ford’s three addresses, and Richard Nixon’s final 1974 speech). You will also find transcripts of all the speeches back through the Truman administration.
