What did President Lyndon B. Johnson do in the first 24 hours following the Kennedy assassination? STEVE GILLON, Resident Historian for The History Channel and Professor of History at the University of Oklahoma, has written an important new look at this critical turning point in America’s history. In The Kennedy Assassination—24 Hours After: Lyndon B. Johnson’s Pivotal First Day as President, which draws upon tape recordings made during Johnson’s first hours as President, Gillon shows that much of the Johnson agenda was developed in the immediate aftermath of Kennedy’s death. A book signing will follow his Forum.
