I was there. In this crowd.
On this day in 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in
Dallas, Texas. After breakfast in Fort Worth he flew to Dallas and, with
his wife and Governor and Mrs. John Connally, began a motorcade trip in
an open car toward downtown Dallas. As the car passed through Dealy
Plaza several shots rang out. Both Kennedy and Connally were hit.
Kennedy died at 1:00 PM in Parkland Hospital. Vice President Lyndon
Johnson was sworn in as president of the United States at 2:38 PM.
