  • Mrs. Kennedy, John F. Kennedy, Jr., and White House Butlers in the West Sitting Hall

    This photograph of Jacqueline Kennedy and her son John F. Kennedy, Jr, posing for a photograph with White House butlers in the West Sitting Hall prior to her final departure from the White House was taken by Robert L. Knudsen on December 6, 1963. After removing her personal items, Mrs. Kennedy rearranged the remaining furnishings to cover bare spaces in an effort to make the house more welcoming to President Lyndon B. Johnson and his family. The West Sitting Hall is often a favorite for first families. But until 1869, the room was the location of an open stairwell connecting the State Floor to the private residence. President Ulysses S. Grant had the staircase replaced with a smaller one and the room slowly took shape. During the 1902 Theodore Roosevelt renovation, the stairwell was completely removed, allowing the West Sitting Hall to connect with the Center Hall and the rest of the Second Floor residence. The room is noted for the large arched window that mirrors the one in the East Sitting Hall, on the opposite end of the Center Hall.

    This photograph is of Caroline Kennedy and John F. Kennedy, Jr., the children of President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, on the Truman Balcony during the Black Watch tattoo on November 13, 1963. The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) was a British Army line infantry regiment from 1881 until 2006 when it became the 3rd Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland. A tattoo was originally simply a type of military music, but the word evolved to encompass the entire performance. Nine members of the Black Watch returned to the United States to participate in President Kennedy's funeral procession from the White House to the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle.
