In 1964, the U.S. is upset about President Kennedy being assassinated. During this year, there are many events that are making the U.S. cheerful and happy again, but also scared and nosy. China tests its first atomic bomb which makes the U.S. worried, the Pop Tart is invented, Sugar Ray Robinson retires as a hero, and the Olympics are taking place and much more. Many movies and TV shows come out like Bewitched, The Dick Van Dike Show, and many more.
