JFK was assassinated on November 22, 1963. Many historians believe his assassination marked a turning point in the history of the U.S. and changed the course of events in the 1960′s. It is also one of the most controversial events of American history.

The official history is that one man, Lee Harvey Oswald, shot JFK in Dallas acting alone from the 6th floor of a building with a rifle. Many people in this country believe there was a conspirac

to kill Kennedy and that more than one man shot Kennedy. Some believe the government (CIA/FBI/Lyndon Johnson) conspired to have Kennedy assassinated.

You will be answering questions from the following document during the videos we will watch.
