WHAT IS THE STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS?

George Washington was elected the first President of the United States after an election held from 12/15/1788 to 01/10/1789. He was dedicated in April 1789 and delivered the first State of the Union address the following year on January 8, 1790. Although it was the shortest State of the Union address Union, it was still much longer than Washington’s second inaugural speech which was only 135 words!

Project Gutenberg has a compilation of all State of the Union Address from 1790 to 2008, obviously a work in progress. Of the 8 speeches given by President Washington, the first was the only one given in January.



Juliana thought it was the Federalist Papers. She didn’t bet anything, so she ended up with the $3,400 she started with.

Emmett was right. He doubled his $15,400 to $30,800.

Kelly went with an inaugural speech. She lost $11,001 and was left with $8,799. Thus, for the third time, Emmett Stanton won the match from second place. His 3-day total is $72,600. To borrow a phrase from Jackie Gleason, how cute!
