TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Saturday marks the 45th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Kennedy was shot while riding in his motorcade in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963. He died soon after.

The nation was shocked by the shooting, and many South Georgians say they will always remember where they were when they first heard the news. Christine Tibbetts was in high school at the time and said she still remembers the weight of the sadness in her community.

"It was a state of shock. And I even remember walking home from school a couple of hours later and even that sense of the sidewalks and the people and just a hush over the community," said Tibbetts.

Lee Harvey Oswald was charged with killing the 35th president of the United States, though many doubt he acted alone.
