In Dallas, TX on November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated. The President was in a presidential limo with the roof down, waving to the welcoming crowds, accompanied by his wife Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connolly, and the governor’s wife Nellie. The following year an investigative commission concluded that the president was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone.

Dallas News: JFK 50
From the city where it all took place, the Dallas News presents an opportunity to explore (“Scholars dismiss the endless theories, but that doesn’t deter certain ‘assassination researchers.'”) and discuss (“Share your remembrances of the JFK assassination.”) Also worthwhile is the sixty-three photo slideshow, that starts a moment before the fatal shot, and ends with newly appointed President Lyndon Johnson speaking at Andrews Air Force Base.

JFK Library: November 22, 1963: Death of the President
“At the end of September, the president [John F. Kennedy] traveled west, speaking in nine different states in less than a week. The trip was meant to put a spotlight on natural resources and conservation efforts. But JFK also used it to sound out themes such as education, national security, and world peace for his run in 1964.” The president’s library offers a three-page article about the assassination, including videos and a link to the JFK 50 site commemorating the life and accomplishments of our 35th president.

LIFE: JFK’S Assassination, Frame by Frame
Although just thirteen photos, this slideshow tells the story revealed by Abraham Zapruder’s 8mm film of Kennedy’s assassination. “Millions of people who were alive at the time of John Kennedy’s assassination first learned of the existence of Abraham Zapruder’s 8mm home-movie of the killing in the pages of LIFE magazine. It was there, in the November 29, 1963, issue of the famed weekly that countless readers first encountered, in LIFE’s words, ‘a remarkable and exclusive series of pictures which show, for the first time and in tragic detail, the fate which befell our President.'”
