Today I have been thinking of President Kennedy as it was 51 years ago that he was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.
The American Presidency from 1861 to 1961
Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy became president a century apart from each other. They also served our country as president during important times in our history. President Lincoln was president during the Civil War and President Kennedy was president during the Cold War.
I like the two captions in the cartoon:
The Hope and Voice of Freedom in a Divided Country
The Hope and Voice of Freedom in a Divided World
There are many similarities between Lincoln and Kennedy, but I am not going to list them in this post.
Instead, I will simply share an image of both of them and give links to what I have written before.
The picture here is the cover of a John F. Kennedy Memorial record that I have in my album collection. You can read more about it in my post: 50 Years Ago
I am also getting ready to read another biography of President Lincoln. I have been learning a lot more about him with some of my recent reading.
