MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – The nation remembers President John F. Kennedy, 50 years after his assassination. President Kennedy was in Dallas, Texas at the time of his death, but shortly before that fatal trip Kennedy made a stop in Memphis.

Action News 5 found pictures of his visit to the bluff city. These pictures are posted on the Historic-Memphis website and are from 1960, when the president was here for a campaign speech.

In those photos, he is seen speaking in front of a huge crowd on Riverside Drive looking towards Front Street.

In Dallas, several events will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination.
