COLUMBIA — In 1790, President George Washington stood in front of a new nation and delivered the first State of the Union address. In 1923, Calvin Coolidge's voice could be heard in any American home with a radio. Two decades later, Harry S. Truman televised his goals for the nation. Now, the State of the Union address is going online.
