The life of President John F. Kennedy ended 50 years ago on Nov. 22, 1963 by an assassin’s bullet, slightly less than three years from the day he first took office as 35th president of the United States. As the country prepares to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his death, many historians and political science experts are reviewing elements of his legacy that might have been recorded in history’s annals very differently if he had not been killed. Gardner-Webb University professors Dr. Ben Gaskins (political science) and Dr. Joseph Moore (history) view JFK’s assassination as a turning point in the culture of American politics for a number of reasons.
