In Dallas, somber and thoughtful ceremonies were set for Friday afternoon to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who was gunned down on Nov. 22, 1963, as his open-air motorcade traveled through the city.
Bells were expected to toll throughout Dealey Plaza, where sniper Lee Harvey Oswald fired upon Kennedy, who was traveling with his wife, Jacqueline, and Texas Gov. John Connally and his wife, Nellie. The death of Kennedy, the nation's youngest president, plunged the word into mourning, and even today he continues to remain a figure of hope and unity.
Historian David McCullough was scheduled to read passages from Kennedy's speeches, including his much-repeated call to service made during his 1961 inaugural address: "Ask not what your country will do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."

In this video, journalist Richard Stolley (who later became PEOPLE magazine's founding editor) recounts how he tracked down Zapruder, an amateur film-buff, and purchased the 26-second clip for Life magazine.

On this bittersweet anniversary, the Kennedy family has reason to celebrate: The first photos of its youngest member have emerged, 50 years after the death of President John F. Kennedy.
Nora Kara Kennedy was born on Nov. 19, joining the ranks of a family that includes one president, three senators, four members of the House of Representatives and one ex-boyfriend of Taylor Swift. Her father, former U.S. representative Patrick Kennedy, is the son of longtime senator Ted Kennedy, which (if you're keeping track) makes her the great-niece of JFK.
