This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidents - Kennedy's New Frontier. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Kennedy's, John F. and Jacqueline brought a new dynamic to the presidency. They called it Camelot. Like King Arthur and Guinevere, a dynamic young leader and his beautiful bride led the nation. The White House was their home, America their kingdom.
After squeaking by Richard Nixon in the election of 1960, John F. Kennedy set forth new challenges for the United States. In his inauguration speech, he challenged his fellow Americans to "Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country."
In his abbreviated Presidency, Kennedy failed to accomplish all he wanted domestically. But the ideas and proposals he supported survived his assassination. Medicare, federal support for education, and wilderness protection all became part of Lyndon Johnson's “Great Society.”
Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated Kennedy in November, 1963. His death provided a popular mandate for these important programs. In the tumultuous years that followed, many yearned for the happy Kennedy years — a return to Camelot.
The presentation covers the following:
