Hamilton County was a long way from Camelot on Nov. 22, 1963, the day that young president and first lady climbed into a convertible as they made their way through Dallas. President John F. Kennedy, only into his first term, was already legendary. In a matter of minutes, some say, the course of history changed. President John F. Kennedy had been shot and died a short time later. In the last 50 years, there has been much speculation about whether Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in plotting to kill the president. The moment that Kennedy was shot, people throughout the country know where they were, and Hamilton County residents remember, some tearfully, the day the young president died. Here are their memories of that tragic day.
Several area residents share their memories of that tragic day in this week's print or e-editions.
