The Eternal Flame


50 years ago today, Jacqueline Kennedy lit the eternal flame marking the grave of the fallen president, John F. Kennedy, who lies buried in Arlington National Cemetery.  The flame was requested by Mrs. Kennedy who was inspired by several sources including Candle in the Wind, the fourth book in the series by T. H. White, which was the inspiration for the musical Camelot.
