Becoming our 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy would serve just over 1000 days in office, before being assassinated, on November 22, 1963. Kennedy’s progressive agenda during the 1960’s would inspire a new generation of optimism in America. He would become the youngest man and Roman Catholic to hold that office.
This new exhibit features many wonderful photographs from the Kennedy era, including political artifacts. This is another venue brought forth by The Mosquito Fleet Exhibit. Six sections make up this exhibit, from his days of youth, to America’s shock and disbelief over a slain President. Kennedy no doubt was one of the most popular Presidents of our time, with an equally popular First Lady, in Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. She would bring style and grace to the White House. This new exhibit will certainly help to educate those too young to remember Kennedy, and for others will bring back fond memories of Kennedy in the 60’s.
