Three days after his assassination in Dallas, Texas, John F. Kennedy
was laid to rest with full military honors at
Arlington National
Cemetery
in Virginia.

Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was shot to death
while riding in an open-car motorcade with his wife and Texas
Governor John Connally through the streets of downtown Dallas.

Ex-Marine and communist sympathizer Lee Harvey Oswald was the alleged assassin. Kennedy was rushed to Dallas’ Parkland Hospital, where he was pronounced dead 30 minutes later. He was 46.

Vice President Lyndon Johnson, who was three cars behind
President Kennedy in the motorcade, was sworn in as the 36th
president of the United States less than two hours later. He took
the presidential oath of office aboard Air Force One as it sat on
the runway at Dallas Love Field airport. The swearing in was
witnessed by some 30 people, including Jacqueline Kennedy,
who was still wearing clothes stained with her husband’s blood.
Seven minutes later, the presidential jet took off for Washington.
