John F. Kennedy Assassinated (1963)
In an effort to heal local party factionalism and boost his own standing for the next year’s election, President Kennedy visited Texas in November 1963. While passing through Dallas in his motorcade, he was fatally shot on November 22 by Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald, in turn, was shot while in police custody by Jack Ruby. The nation was profoundly shocked and grieved by the president’s murder. A special investigating commission headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren subsequently decided that Oswald had acted alone in the assassination. Nevertheless, many people, then and since, believed that a conspiracy had existed.
