The Last Two Days, November 1963: 21-22

If you have an extra 19 minutes, you might want to watch this short film about the last two days of JKF's life. Below is the description from the JFK Library.
President Kennedy makes scheduled public appearances and delivers remarks, including his last public words, and interacts informally with crowds that greet him in San Antonio, Houston, Fort Worth, and Dallas, Texas.

First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, Governor John Connally, and Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson make appearances with President Kennedy.

Also included is a brief segment as the late President's body is returned to the White House on November 23, 1963.

Portions of the soundtrack include radio narration of the assassination of President Kennedy, and a live recording of Judge Sarah Hughes swearing in Lyndon B. Johnson as 36th President of the United States.

Produced by: Naval Photographic Center, 1211-69. Photographed by: Thomas M. Atkins, Robert L. Knudsen.
Starting around minute 13 is very distressing. PBS has had some very good specials about JFK. Last night I watched a program about Oswald. So many things that I had never heard before. Sometimes this nation's history is hard to believe.
