Let’s Start with a Brain Gym
• Make as many words as you can in 1
minute from the following word
•Historicity
What is the basic
difference between
fiction and
nonfiction?
The Kennedy Assassination
• On November 22, 1963, while on a campaign swing through Texas, the president
was shot dead by a twenty-four-year-old ex-marine drifter named Lee Harvey
Oswald. … Kennedy’s death was the isolated act of a single individual, the
commission concluded. --America Interpreted by Woods and Gatewood, p. 957-
959
• Then, on November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy was shot down as his presidential
motorcade moved through Dallas, Texas. Police quickly arrested Lee Harvey Oswald
as the alleged assassin. Oswald had ties to the Marcello crime family, had once lived
in the Soviet Union, and had a bizarre set of political affiliations, especially with
groups interested in Cuba. Oswald declared his innocence, but he was never
brought to trial. Instead, Oswald himself was killed, while in the custody of the
Dallas police, by Jack Ruby, a nightclub owner who also had links to powerful crime
figures. --Liberty, Equality, Power: A History of the American People by Murrin,
Johnson, McPherson, Gerstle, Rosenberg, Rosenberg, p. 990
• Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, an act that
shocked and saddened the entire world. –The American Profile by Borden and
Graham, p. 364
This is a work of fiction But so is much of this
The Zapruder Film
Who?
What?
When?
Where?
How?
What if?
• The conclusion of the United
States House of Representatives
Select Committee on
Assassinations determined that
there was ever reason to believe
that John F. Kennedy died as the
result of a conspiracy and that
there was reason to believe
there was more than one
shooter.
• But what they nor
anyone else has ever
done is prove
conclusively that Lee
Harvey Oswald ever fired
a shot at the President.
It was here that I was haunted by the
statement of Oswald
“I’m just a patsy!”
• What if he was a patsy?
• He never received a trial.
• Why are there still over 50,000
documents about Oswald being
withheld from the public?
Then I saw this!
Curry plants just
enough seeds of doubt
to make a researcher
want to dig further.
No one was closer to
the investigation in
Dallas than Curry.
Building on primary source materials we
began to fill in the “what if” blanks.

Nest
Another Studebaker Picture from crime scene
What we created is an historical fiction book that has
perhaps more truth than the Warren Report.
An excerpt from chapter 9 page 68
The Lesson for
Students
• History as
exploration
instead of
singular
interpretation
• Primary Source
• Questioning
• Closer Reading
• Drawing
Conclusions
based on facts
Thank You
