List of In-Person Annual Message and State of the Union Addresses

The following is a list of in-person Annual Message and State of the Union Addresses given by Presidents of the United States before Joint Sessions of Congress. There have been 94 in total from 1790 to 2016. In 1945, President Franklin Roosevelt's address was read to a Joint Session of the House and Senate. Since the President did not deliver the address, it does not count as an in-person address. The address was formally known as the Annual Message from 1790 to 1946. Since 1947, it has officially been known as the State of the Union Address.

President Thomas Jefferson began the practice of sending separate, written Annual Messages to the House and Senate, instead of an in-person address, in 1801. This remained the practice of Presidents until Woodrow Wilson revived in-person delivery before a Joint Session of Congress in 1913.
