50th Anniversary of the JFK Assassination


President John Fitzgerald Kennedy (aka “JFK”, “John Kennedy”, and “Jack Kennedy”) was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, at 12:30 pm Central Standard Time on Friday November 22, 1963, while on a political trip to Texas. He was shot once in the throat, once in the upper back, with the fatal shot hitting him in the head. He was the 35th President of the United States, serving from January 1961 until November 1963.  He was the 4th president to be killed.

There is a ton of information out there for the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination.  So we will just cover some of it.  I juste looked at the history channel’s website and I’m very disappointed to find that the FK specials will not be running the the prime time slot.  It will be on in prime time on H2, if you get that.  History channel will be running Pawn Stars instead, good grief!  You can watch all kinds of cool full length video on PBS right now, so no need to wait for it on history channel or PBS.

There is much, much more out there though like this article on Boing Boing that states:

59 percent of Americans now believe there was more to JFK’s death than a lone gunman.

Below is a great video all tweaked with computers to show the best view possible of the assassination.

And lastly here are some pictures that you have probably never seen. They were first published in LIFE magazine 11/14/2013.

Decide you want to dive into the huge amount of information about the JFK assassination? Here are some books to get you started.
