Sunday, November 22nd is the 52nd anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The 35th President of the United States was shot to death by a hidden assassin armed with a high powered rifle.

At 46-years-old Kennedy lived about one hour after a sniper cut him down, as his limo left Dallas.

In 1956, Kennedy was very nearly selected as the democratic presidential candidate.

In November 1960, Kennedy defeated Nixon, making him the 2nd youngest American President in history, 2nd to Theodore Roosevelt.
