President Lyndon Johnson delivered his final State of the Union Address to Congress on January 14, 1969, less than a week before the inauguration of his successor, Republican Richard Nixon. The speech served as his goodbye to the American people, as he did not give a farewell speech. President Johnson spoke about what he saw as his accomplishments, including passage of the Voting Rights Act and the creation of Medicare, and he expressed hope that negotiations would result in peace in Vietnam.
