If the United States can be said to have a royal family then the Kennedy's of Massachusetts would be it. John F. Kennedy (1917-19630 was the 35th President of the United States serving from 1961 until his assassination in November of 1963. His Presidency although much too short is often referred to as the time of Camelot. Kennedy had a way of electrifying his listeners with his words and presentation. Included are the three State of the Union Speeches Kennedy delivered. These speeches are a look at a time just as the 60's were about to erupt.
