The Kennedy Assassination President John F. Kennedy was travelling along a predetermined motorcade route in Dallas, Texas when he was fatally shot, receiving wounds to the chest, back, and head. Shortly after the assassination, Dallas police arrested former U.S. Marine Corps Private Lee Harvey Oswald. On November 24 of the same year, Jack Ruby, owner of a Dallas nightclub, shot Oswald. Less than a year after the two murders, on September 24, 1964, the Warren Commission, headed by Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, released a report stating their verdict that Lee Harvey Oswald killed President John F. Kennedy "alone and without advice or assistance" (Encarta). Now, thirty-five years after the assassination, many Americans still believe the commission's claim that Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole assassin of President Kennedy.

Review of Research The assassination of John F. Kennedy is said to be, as from the Warren report, a murder. The Warren report states that a man, Lee Harvey Oswald, fired 3 shots from the 6th floor of the Texas Book State Depository building. One missed the President’s motorcade completely; another hit President Kennedy in the neck, and the last hit him in the head, which was later said after an autopsy, to be the cause of death. The problem with the Warren report is that some eyewitnesses say that shots came from in front of the motorcade, which would mean there were two or more shooters. The FBI did little to help the Warren Commission in finding answers; initially the report was to remain sealed for 75 years or until the year 2039, however, most of it was released in 1992.

It was fight for a strong hold on the oval office. Lyndon Johnson, Vice-President under Kennedy, with the help of Texas Governor John Connaly, conspired with Mafia to assassinate President Kennedy. The only undisputedly unmanipulated record of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy is a reel of film shot by Abraham Zapruder during the motorcade through Dealey Plaza. The film shows the motorcade slowly winding through the plaza, passing behind a road sign, and coming out the other side with the President holding his throat.
