The main focus of 60s news in America was on the successful progression, and devastating casualties, of the Civil Rights Movement. John F. Kennedy, one of the most popular Presidents of all-time and an advocate of civil rights, was sworn into office in 1961, before being assassinated only two years later by Lee Harvey Oswald while riding in his presidential limousine. Later in the decade, Martin Luther King, the figurehead of the Civil Rights Movement who had orated his “I Have a Dream” speech to over a million people three months before Kennedy’s death, would be assassinated himself at a motel in Memphis.
Another huge event in the 1960s was the Apollo 11 landing, which saw Neil Armstrong become the first human being to set foot on the surface of the moon. Personalise your Washington Post Decade book with a name and special message, which will be printed in a certificate on the title page. The name will also be embossed in gold on the cover, making this the perfect gift for any budding historian.
How to Personalise the 1960s Decade Book
This edition comes in a green leatherette cover with your recipient’s name embossed in gold as standard. Also add a special message to feature on the book’s title page.
Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

Good stocking filler.
Nice book with good story line and nicely illustrated. Quick delivery and very good value with groupon offer. Wouldn’t pay full price and ordering confusing with having to pay in two stages. Overall very pleased and it will be a stoking filler for my 6 year old grandson.
Excellent. Very well presented and speedy delivery.
