Quote:I imagine seeing the Lincoln funeral procession by TR must have been like us "older folks" who remember watching the Kennedy procession on TV. It's something never forgotten.

I was 9 years old when Kennedy was assassinated and remember it all quite well - and yes, I remember seeing Oswald get shot by Ruby; seeing the funeral procession on TV, etc. Always a horse-lover, I remember seeing "Black Jack" the riderless horse, with the boots reversed in the stirrups; seeing Jackie in that flowing, wind-swept black veil and watching as little "John-John" saluted his father's casket. Heartbreaking -
