At 12:30 pm on November 22, 1963, President Kennedy was struck by sniper bullets while passing through Dealey Plaza in Dallas in an open limousine. The shots reverberated through the plaza, shocking onlookers who witnessed the fatal headshot staining Kennedy’s Lincoln convertible with blood.

Merely eighty minutes later, Lee Harvey Oswald, an employee at the Texas School Book Depository in Dealey Plaza, was apprehended for the murder of Dallas police officer J.D. Tippit. Later, he faced accusations of assassinating the president, allegedly firing shots from the book depository’s sixth-floor window using a Mannlicher-Carcano rifle.

Despite the allegations, Oswald never faced trial. Two days later, nightclub owner Jack Ruby fatally shot Oswald in the basement of the police headquarters as officers prepared to transfer him to jail, a shocking event broadcast live on television. President Lyndon Baines Johnson appointed Chief Justice Earl Warren to lead a committee investigating the assassination. Following ten months of hearings, the Warren Commission concluded that Oswald acted alone. However, widespread skepticism persists, with many Americans suspecting a broader conspiracy and alleging a cover-up. As noted by JFK author and assassination historian L.D.C. Fitzgerald in a recent interview, the debate surrounding Kennedy’s assassination continues to intrigue, frustrate, and intrigue for generations to come.
