John F. Kennedyby Karen Bornemann Spies
At age forty-three, John F. Kennedy became the youngest president of the United States. He created the Peace Corps and put the space program on a path to the moon. His youthful leadership in creating the "New Society" and in advancing civil rights ended abruptly on November 22, 1963, when he was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. This title examines the thirty-fifth president's powerful family, his rise in politics, and the controversial circumstances surrounding his death.
