Last night, President Barack Obama delivered the sixth State of the Union address of his presidency. Did you know you can access all of the other State of the Union addresses at the American Presidency Project? While many have been delivered as speeches, some were just submitted to Congress as a written statement. Both James Garfield and William Henry Harrison didn’t even deliver a State of the Union Address.
The American Presidency Project also includes Inaugural Addresses, Executive Orders, College Commencement Addresses and much more. The library also has a research guide on Presidential Documents and directs you to the official publications of these presidential statements.
Feel free to ask a reference librarian if you need any assistance while researching presidential documents.
