November 2013 - February 2014
On November 19, 1963, the country marked with solemn pride the 100th anniversary of Lincoln's immortal Gettysburg Address. But three days later, President Kennedy's fateful ride through the streets of Dallas cost America not only the loss of one [of] her most beloved presidents, but her innocence as well. These two November events form an indelible part of American history. In fact, every five years the memory of these events is respectfully acknowledged. This year's 130th anniversary of Lincoln's speech was predictably met with the release of new books and exhibitions from coast to coast. But thirty years after the President was shot in Dallas, the country still mourns. No doubt, the Kennedy assassination will likewise be remembered 130 years from now, with the controversial events of that day still hotly debated.
