A Day No One Will Forget
Though there have been many tragedies in the history of America, few have touched as many people or had such a lasting impact as the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. On November 22nd, 1963, the President was touring through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, when he was shot and killed in the back of his limousine. The assassin was later caught and identified as Lee Harvey Oswald, an employee of the Texas School Book Depository. He had taken the fatal shots from the sixth floor of the building he worked and the evidence that put him away was found there.
After the Depository shut down in 1970, county offices moved into the first five floors in 1977, leaving the top two empty. Due to the overwhelming response of visitors to Dealey, a museum was opened in 1989 with a gallery added 13 years later and with a reservation at one of the hotels near the Sixth Floor Museum – JFK, you can now learn the facts about that day, a day no one will forget.
