The Assasiation of JFK

Actual Footage From The Assasination Of J.F.K

What happened? On November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Tx, President John F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline Kennedy rode in a motorcade through the streets of Dallas in preparation for his next political campaign. Around 12:30 PM, the car turned off of Main Street at Dealey Plaza and gunshots were heard. President Kennedy was shot twice, once in the neck and once in his head, and the governor was also shot in his chest. Soon after they were shot the car rushed to the nearest hospital, but unfortunately Kennedy's injuries were too severe and there was nothing that could have been done, so he took his last breath at 1:00 PM.

Who Did It and Why? There are many conspiracy theories as to who, how, and why Lee Harvey Oswald or the CIA killed John F. Kennedy. Historians confirmed that the "Magic Bullet" theory is the one that makes the most sense because after closely researching and reviewing the event, it seems as if Oswald acted alone, but others object. The motive for John F. Kennedy's death has never been confirmed, so it's left to us to decide which story we want to believe. In the end, the only people who know the motive is the hired assassin and his employer...

Who was J.F.K?Formerly known as Lt. Kennedy from serving in WWII, John F. Kennedy was the 35th president of the United States both one of the youngest to be elected and one of the youngest to die. In 1961, Kennedy won the election against Republican Richard Nixon in a very close race. In his inaugural speech he left americans with the motivation to be active citizens. "Ask not what your country can do--ask what you can do for your country."Called for the world to join together to fight in "the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself."
