John F. Kennedy's presidency was tragically cut short, but his legacy looms large even today. This beautifully illustrated biography—with 15 removable facsimile objects—offers a unique look at America's 35th president. From his wartime heroism and marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier to the controversial 1960 election, Cuban Missile Crisis, Civil Rights movement, escalating conflict in Vietnam, and assassination, it captures the key moments of his life and career.    The removable documents, from Kennedy Archives at the U.S. National Archives, include: 
A birthday telegram from a besotted girlfriend * Top-secret memos and cables * Handwritten notes from Kennedy's inaugural address * A “Wanted for Treason” poster that circulated in Dallas the day before his assassination * A bloodstained sketch of President Kennedy's skull from the autopsy
