The world was shocked and frightened when President John F. Kennedy was gunned down by an assassin’s bullet in 1963. What would happen to the government of the most powerful nation on Earth? When Kennedy’s vice president, Lyndon Baines Johnson, took the presidential oath of office on Air Force One just hours after the assassination, the White House photographer was there. Cecil Stoughton’s iconic photo showed the world that the smooth and orderly transfer of power called for in the U.S. Constitution had occurred. His photo helped ease the shock, tension, and fear in an anxious country.

About the Author:

Historian and award-winning author Don Nardo has written many books for young people about modern history, including studies of the rise of Hitler and Nazism, World War II, international terrorism, and dozens of military topics. In addition, he specializes in ancient history and has published numerous volumes about the histories and cultures of the ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and peoples of Mesopotamia. Nardo, who also composes and arranges orchestral music, lives with his wife, Christine, in Massachusetts.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* The latest titles in the excellent Captured History series once again view history through the lens of groundbreaking photographs. The cover of Assassination and Its Aftermath: How a Photograph Reassured a Shocked Nation features the iconic image of Lyndon B. Johnson being sworn in as the thirty-sixth president of the U.S. aboard Air Force One, just hours after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The photo was snapped by Cecil Stoughton; just earlier that day, November 22, 1963, he had photographed JFK and Jacqueline arriving at Love Field in Dallas. Chock-full of stirring images of JFK and Johnson, alongside a detailed text dovetailing their two stories, this captures a nation in flux. Interestingly, Stoughton worried his Hasselblad camera had malfunctioned—luckily, the film documenting Johnson’s oath was intact and the rest, as they say, is history. With a clean design and readable text, plus the vivid and haunting photos, the Captured History series makes events in the past feel immediate and palpable—and what better way to get kids interested? Stellar back matter, too, including tips on how to apply Common Core standards. Grades 6-9. --Ann Kelley
