Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy( Associated Press )
March 23, 1968, Sacramento
Sen. Robert F. Kennedy campaigns at a shopping center in Sacramento. Kennedy had announced his candidacy for president a week earlier, on March 16.
He was 42 years old and serving his first term in the U.S. Senate. His campaign would last only 82 days and would end in violence in Los Angeles in early June, just moments after his greatest political victory.
