At 12:30 p.m. on Friday November 22nd 1963 in Dallas, Texas the 35th President of the United States was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald. On a rare occasion JFK was accompanied by his wife first lady Jacqueline Kennedy along with Texas Governor John Connally and his wife on a 10-mile motorcade downtown Dallas.
