Ronald Reagan's State of the Union Address Collection

Ronald Reagan was well respected for his ability to clearly articulate his message to the American people and the world. In addition to his numerous speeches around the world, he had the special privledge of delivering seven State of the Union addresses to the American People - a time where he outlined what was accompished and what was left to be done. Each of the speeches is a masterful example of his speaking style and a reflection of his unflappable core principles and makes for a fascinating retrospective of one of America's greatest Presidents.
