It was on this day in 1963 that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while traveling through Dallas in a convertible. Sitting beside his wife Jacky and waving to the crowds gathered to catch a glimpse of the iconic leader, it soon became a dark day in American history when the 35th president of the United States was allegedly targeted and fatally shot at by Lee Harvey Oswald. With November 25th declared as an official day of mourning by his successor to the presidency, Lyndon Johnson, be sure to take a moment to mark and remember the charismatic President Kennedy on this day.
