Dealey Plaza

People gathered to see the president’s motorcade wave as the motorcade drove by. The motorcade turned off of Main Street at Dealey Plaza and as it was passing the Texas School Book Depository. Gunfire was heard in the plaza. Bullets struck the president’s neck and head and he slumped over.

Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for the assassination of the President. He was a new employee at the Texas book depository. He was shot and killed by Jack Ruby.

Got to see

We went there on Tuesday morning and the Book depository is now a JFK library. However, it was closed. But we were able to tour the grounds and see where he was shoot.

It was a surreal thing to see where a president was assassinated. This is where the rules were changed to protect

Met a guy named Ron Washington, he was giving tours and talking about JFK. He put together a booklet. It cost me $5. It was well worth it.
