November 22 marks 51 years President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and November 25 marks 51 years since his funeral. In honor of this great leader’s life and legacy, the Museum has added a new JFK feature to the Presidential Funerals exhibit – a miniature replica of the well-known scene during Kennedy’s state funeral where John F. Kennedy, Jr., standing near his mother Jacqueline Kennedy, sister Caroline Kennedy, and uncles Senator Ted Kennedy and Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, saluted his father in front of the St. Matthew’s Cathedral as the casket carrying his father was borne by caisson on its final let to Arlington National Cemetery for burial. This new element to the exhibit joins several other JFK related artifacts, including a replica of President Kennedy’s mahogany burial casket and the original eternal flame from his gravesite.
