On 22 November 1963, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, while his motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza. On 29 November 1963, Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th President of the United States, appointed a panel of inquiry--chaired by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Earl Warren--to investigate the death of his predecessor. A summary of its conclusions--technically only an advisory report to the president--was published on 27 September 1964. Twenty-six volumes of related testimony and exhibits were published on 23 November 1964. These are among the very few undisputed facts about the death of JFK. Now we know more.ÃŠ James H.
