The Museum of Florida History is reaching out to those who remember that fateful day.

If you go to floridamemory.com, you can look at photographs of the former president and learn about his many connections to the Sunshine State.

The project is part of the State Library and Archives of Florida,

You're also asked to submit your memories of that day. Peter Jefferson, 85, volunteers at the museum. Jefferson was working on Coconut Grove, Florida and was listening to his radio when the news broke.

"Someone said the president has been wounded at an accident in Dallas and no one knows why or who or who would made the shot and he's been taken to the hospital," recalled Jefferson.
