Assassination of John F. Kennedy

John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated on Friday, November 22, 1963 at 12:30 p.m. in Dallas, Texas while riding in a presidential motorcade in Dealey Plaza. Kennedy was riding with his wife Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connally, and Connally's wife, Nellie, and was fatally shot by former U.S. Marine Lee Harvey Oswald. A ten-month investigation by the Warren Commission from November 1963 to September 1964 concluded that Oswald acted alone in shooting Kennedy, and that Jack Ruby also acted alone when he killed Oswald before he could stand trial. Kennedy's death marked the fourth (following that of Lincoln, Garfield, and McKinley) and most recent assassination of an American President. Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson automatically became President upon Kennedy's death.

Its been almost fifty years since JFK was assassinated in Dallas, Texas and I feel there is more to the tragedy than what we have been told. Although I do believe conspiracy theories are made in order for people to avoid the truth, what has been theorized about what really happened like the mob being involved or Oswald being a scapegoat for a larger plot somehow seems true since he was killed before he could be put on trial. It's difficult to dispute who was the cause of the assassination when people have so many theories about what happened that day.
