Kennedy was elected in 1960 and was the youngest president to be elected at that time. He was the United States 35th president. Kennedy attended a private school called Choate and later graduated from Harvard in 1940. He later served in World War II with the Navy. His term lasted 3 years until his assassination in 1963.
On November 22, 1963, Kennedy was gunned downwhile riding his presidential motorcade through downtown Dallas. He suffered a head wound by a shooter suspected to be Lee Harvey Oswald. But before any conclusion was reached,Oswald was shot and killed while he was being transferred from a city jail to a county jail.
He was a President that came from a powerful family.Attended a private school setting that was a complete contrast to the lives of 1960s working-class Americans.Many believe he tried to do the best he could,as any President does.”Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”
