Jackie Kennedy looked radiant on the morning of November 22, 1963. She joined her husband at the Hotel Texas, in Ft Worth, where they gathered for breakfast with state and local dignitaries.
She had been reluctant to leave her two children in Washington but did so because she believed the trip to Texas was an important event.
