50 Years Ago Today: President John F. Kennedy Assassinated [Video]


Today marks the 50th anniversary of the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

The story has become somewhat of a mythical story as grandchildren grow up to hear what seems like inconsistencies between the official Warren Commission report and what has since been released in the years thereafter.

Kennedy was a president that embraced change at a time where it possibly needed it most. He was by Martin Luther King JR. side as the civil rights movement, and tried to avoid going to war in Vietnam.

That day Lyndon B. Johnson became president. The day after Lee Harvey Oswald was murdered by Jack Ruby as the Dallas police department was moving the alleged assassin.

Take a look at some archival footage of this historic day in United States history.
