50th anniversary of the JFK assassination

Fifty years ago, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. As the shocked nation grieved for the popular president, more inconceivable events followed. Within hours, a new president was sworn in and within days the shooter was caught and then killed by a local businessman on live TV. Nov. 22 is filled with events to mark this dark day in American history. -Leanne Burden Seidel ( 34 photos total)
