On December 9, 1869, President Andrew Johnson delivered his fourth and final "Annual Message" to Congress. We now call this the State of the Union. The president did not speak before Congress, instead he sent his report to Congress.

The fourth address was a valedictory blaming Congress for all the problems of Reconstruction.
