Student Blogger Cameron C. Reviews THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN SHOT November 24, 2013

BEA2_presidentOn the morning of November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was readying himself for a motorcade that would change the United States. As he was rounding a street corner, little did he know there was a sniper 10 stories above the motorcade that was also readying himself. Just after his limousine turned the corner, there was a loud boom and the President of the United States of America was unconscious!

I like The President Has Been Shot by James L. Swanson because I enjoy reading about the history of the United States and past presidents. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys learning about the past presidents and the history of the United States. If you enjoyed Catching Lincoln’s Killer, then you will love this book.
