The Making of a Southern Democracy

This chapter describes how John F. Kennedy's finest hours had come in times of national and international crises. Tributes flowed from Americans of nearly all political persuasions. North Carolina governor Terry Sanford said, “With a passionate concern for all people from both sides and from behind, President Kennedy set his strength determinedly for human understanding and world peace, remaining always resolute in his faith, always undaunted and unafraid. The valiant soldier of freedom is dead. All mankind is less.” Nearly the entire country watched with rapt attention the arrival of the body at Andrews Air Force Base, John Jr.'s poignant salute to his father's coffin, the Monday mass at St. Matthew's Cathedral, and the dirge at Arlington National Cemetery.
