One of the most crucial and riveting events of the Cold War is carefully documented through this impressive collection of declassified documents, photographs, audio clips from the Kennedy White House, and submarine naval charts. A detailed chronology and analyses by contemporary historians is also included. This is a wonderful collection of primary source documents that can enrich your study of the Cold War and America during the 1960s.

Find resources related to John F Kennedy: facts, links to several speeches, and a multimedia gallery. One interesting part of this site is the use of word clouds as part of the page with the links to speeches. Each speech includes a published transcript of the text of the speech along with a word cloud emphasizing the most frequently used words. This is part of a larger collection of all the United States presidents but provides a nice starting point for important events and information related to our 35th president.
