Friday Flashback: A Look Back at JFK

This entry, which contains links to several previous posts from The Prices Do DC, originally appeared in The Lantern Lit.



It is said that everyone who was alive in 1963 remembers exactly where they were and what they were doing when they heard that President John F. Kennedy had been shot and killed. And while all may have memories, some memories are more dramatic than others. Take those of former PBS news anchors Robert MacNeil and Jim Lehrer. At the time, MacNeil was a young NBC TV reporter covering the presidential trip to Dallas. Lehrer was a young staffer for one of Dallas' local newspapers. Here is what they remember about that fateful Dallas day 50 years ago that changed their lives and all of America forever. What follows is a series of articles offering a look at JFK's life, death, legacy, and legend.
