Letters to Jackie: Condolences From a Grieving Nation by Ellen Fitzpatricks
These are letters that were written to Jacqueline Kennedy (a few to Caroline or John) after the assassination of John F Kennedy. The letters are so heart-felt and you can actually feel the trauma and heart-break these people are feeling.
The letters were written by all age levels, all races, all political parties.
It really brings to your mind the absolute devastation the country was feeling at the time. And this is just a very small portion of the deluge received by Jackie. This is definitely a record of history and should be cherished and preserved.
