Presidents’ Day

1917 -1963

Amateur film footage of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy was released today. Unlike the famous Abraham Zapruder film, it simply shows them both smiling and waving to the crowds in Dallas. It does not capture the horror of his assassination, just a last glimpse of Camelot.

“The wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed but the liberation of diverse energies of free nations and free men.”

- John Fitzgerald Kennedy, March 23, 1962
University of California, Berkeley
