The assassination of President John Kennedy.

There is no end to video tape from November 22, 1963.  But here are two links I recommend. Both are from CBS News.  The first link will send you to a network page that provides a number of "feature" pieces.

[PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR LINK # 1]

The second link is for true history buffs.  Starting at 1:38 this afternoon CBS will stream coverage exactly as it was, 50 years ago today.  This stream will continue for four days.  This afternoons coverage will include the shock of the murder and the nations uncertainty.  Who did it? Was it nuclear war?  What would become of us?

 This evening it will show President Johnson's return to Washington.  On Saturday it will show the dead President lying in state, and provide continuing news coverage.  On Sunday the stream will show hundreds of thousands of Americans filing past the Presidents casket in the US Capital and the live murder of Lee Harvey Oswald. On Monday the stream will show the Presidents funeral and burial. 

You'll share the nations explosion of grief as little "John John" salutes his fathers passing casket.

It will be very moving.
