November 9, 1960: President-elect John F. Kennedy gives his daughter Caroline, almost 3, a piggy-back ride during a walk in Hyannis Port as he waits for word that Richard Nixon has conceded the election. He made his acceptance speech at 1:50 p.m. at the National Guard Armory In Hyannis just 65 minutes after Nixon conceded and less than an hour and a half after finally receiving the votes need to put him over the top. It was not until 12:30 p.m. that Minnesota gave him the needed 269 electoral votes.
