6. White House School
Jackie, significantly less-than-thrilled with the media attention her daughter attracted on her way to school each morning, created a school within the White House so that Caroline could learn in peace. This unique school was host to many high-profile guests and boasted an integrated group of students. White House staffers also sent their children to the school.
Jackie won an honorary Emmy for her acclaimed 1962 tour of the newly renovated White House, for which Lady Bird Johnson accepted in her place. This historic piece of television history placed her right in the public eye and we were enchanted. Take a look at this clip of the White House TV special.
4) Earlier Assassination Attempts
Before the shots that rocked the world, JFK was the target of at least four other assassination plots. A plan to park and detonate a car filled with dynamite near the president was partially carried out by Richard Pavlick. The bomber supposedly changed his mind when he saw JFK’s young family with him, and headed home. But, the plot was uncovered after the fact. Two other plots were uncovered later as well, another in Florida and one in Illinois.
