John Kennedy

  1. 2. John Fitzgerald Kennedy <ul><li>As president, JFK dealt with important issues like civil rights, legislation, communism, the Cuban missile crisis, space travel, and the spread of nuclear weapons. </li></ul>
  2. 3. The Trip To Dallas <ul><li>Kennedy arrived in Dallas on November 21, 1963 </li></ul><ul><li>Traveled to Texas for a five city tour for a few reasons: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lost the 1960 vote in Texas during the Presidential Campaign and wanted to increase his public image in Texas </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Starting his campaign for the 1964 election </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Kennedy/Johnson ticket was not particularly popular in the 1960 election and wanted to make themselves more popular with those in Dallas </li></ul></ul>
  3. 4. Important Locations of the Assassination <ul><li>The following are three possible locations where the shooters could have possibly shot from: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The Texas School Book Depository </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Grassy Knoll </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The sewer on Elm St. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 6. The Texas School Book Depository <ul><li>This is the most famous location </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Oswald supposedly shot from the 6 th Story of the TSBD </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Would have given him a rear shot at President Kennedy, giving way to the idea of the “Magic Bullet Theory” </li></ul></ul>
  5. 7. The Grassy Knoll <ul><li>The Grassy Knoll is an area on the same side of the street as the TSBD </li></ul><ul><li>Many people claim that shots came from a wall in the Grassy Knoll </li></ul>
  6. 8. The Elm Street Sewer <ul><li>Sewer just past the Freeway Sign </li></ul><ul><li>Would have given the shooter a perfect view of Kennedy and would have caused the “Back and to the left” phenomena </li></ul>
  7. 9. Theory 1: The Single Bullet Theory <ul><li>The single shooter shot the president from above and behind him from the Texas Schoolbook Depository. The one bullet passed through the President’s head and then through Governor Connally’s back. If this is the case we would have to explain the location of the wounds orientation in the vehicle of both men, which would be very difficult. </li></ul>
  8. 11. Theory 2: Multiple Shooters <ul><li>There was one shooter in TSD for sure, and there might have been another one on the famous grassy knoll in front of the vehicle. Multiple shots would have been fired with one bullet hitting each man from the different locations. This theory is also difficult to prove because there is no clear cut evidence of another shooter that was located on the grassy knoll according to pictures and video evidence of the day. </li></ul>
  9. 12. Lee Harvey Oswald <ul><li>The most famous person in the conspiracy </li></ul><ul><li>The shooter from the Texas School Book Depository </li></ul><ul><li>Some claim that there is picture evidence that Oswald was actually standing in front of the TBSD during the shooting </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Was apprehended two hours after the shooting, in the mean time he had shot Officer Tibbits </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Shot to death two days later as he was being transported to a new facility for protection </li></ul>
