In 1963, the state funeral took place during the three days that followed the Kennedy assassination on Friday, November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas. Newspapers were kept as souvenirs rather than sources of updated information. All three major U.S. television networks suspended their regular schedules and switched to all-news coverage from 22 November through 25 November 1963. Kennedy's state funeral procession and the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald were all broadcast live in America and in other places around the world. The state funeral was the first of three in a span of 12 months: The other two were for General Douglas MacArthur and Herbert Hoover. Yet none were so sad as the image of John Kennedy Junior holding his father's hand during his mother's funeral procession.
