Timeline of the John F. Kennedy assassination Background President John F. Kennedy decided to travel to Texas to smooth over frictions in the Democratic Party between liberals Ralph Yarborough and Don Yarborough no relation and conservative John Connally.

The structure to the right of the depository is the Dal-Tex Building. Kennedy's motorcade route through Dallas with Johnson and Connally was planned to give the president some maximum exposure to local crowds before his arrival  for a luncheon at the Trade Martwhere he would meet with civic and business leaders.
The itinerary was designed to serve as a meandering mile km route between the two places, and the motorcade vehicles could be driven slowly within the allotted time. Special Agent Winston G. Sorrels, Special Agent in charge of the Dallas office, were the most active in planning the actual motorcade route.
On November 14, both men attended a meeting at Love Field and drove over the route that Sorrels believed was best suited for the motorcade. For the return trip, the agents selected a more direct route, which was approximately four miles, or 6.
The planned route to the Trade Mart was widely reported in Dallas newspapers several days before the event, for the benefit of people who wished to view the motorcade. The Main Street section of the route precluded a direct turn onto the Fort Worth Turnpike exit which served also as the Stemmons Freeway exitwhich was the route to the Trade Mart, as this exit was only accessible from Elm Street.
Therefore, the planned motorcade route included a short one-block turn at the end of the downtown segment of Main Street, onto Houston Street for one block northward, before turning again west onto Elm, that way they could proceed through Dealey Plaza before exiting Elm onto the Stemmons Freeway.
Nellie Connally, the First Lady of Texas, turned around to the President, who was sitting behind her, and commented, "Mr. President, you can't say Dallas doesn't love you," which President Kennedy acknowledged by saying "No, you certainly can't.
Suddenly, shots were fired at President Kennedy as his motorcade continued down Elm Street. Many bystanders later said that they heard what they first thought to either be a firecracker or the backfire of one of the vehicles shortly after the President had begun waving.Written by Edward Steers Jr., Narrated by William Coon.

COMMENT: While going through some boxes containing stored research material, we came across an essay by the brilliant Henrik Kruger, the author of The Great Heroin Coup: Drugs, Intelligence and International Fascism.
Although we read Kruger’s essay in on the three-hour show we used to do on Sunday nights, the article has never been included into the archives. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, was assassinated by well-known stage actor John Wilkes Booth on April 14, , while attending the play Our American Cousin at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C.
Shot in the head as he watched the play, Lincoln died the following day at a.m., in the Petersen House opposite the theater. He was the first American president to be. Few attempts at telling a comprehensive story of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln succeed so well in that comprehensiveness as Blood on the Moon.
