WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE AND WHY?
Shortly after noon on November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated as he rode in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, Texas. Bullets struck the president's neck and head. The car drove quickly to Parkland Memorial Hospital a short ways away. But nothing could be done for President Kennedy. A Catholic priest came to administer the last rites, and at 1:00 p.m. President Kennedy was pronounced dead.
