For his first 45 years, John F. Kennedy led a storied life; the son of wealth and influential parents, he graduated from Harvard, fought in WWII, then went on to become a Congressman and Senator. He won the Pulitzer Prize in 1957, then became the youngest elected President in history in 1961 at the age of 43. He had a beautiful young wife, two young children, and held the highest political office in the United States.
The dream ended on November 22, 1963, when Kennedy was killed by an assassin while riding in a motorcade. Just four days after his burial, his grieving widow cemented his legacy and image when she told a reporter, "Don't let it be forgot that for one brief moment, there was Camelot," comparing JFK's life in the White House to the mythical King Arthur.
Do you know which branch of the service JFK belonged to during WWII, or which state he represented in the Senate before being elected President? Remember the names of his two kids, or how long he was in office? Can you separate our the myths from the reality? Prove your knowledge of the 35th U.S. President with this John F. Kennedy quiz!
