On November 23, 1963 history was changed forever as President Kennedy was killed on a visit to Dallas, Texas. A comprehensive investigation was undertaken by the United States Government to ascertain the true story of the assassination. From its initial release, The Warren Commission finding that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin of President Kennedy has been challenged. The controversy has been so great over the years that the House of Representatives reinvestigated the assassination in 1976 and years after the killing, the body of the assassin was reexamined to determine if it really was Lee Harvey Oswald. This seminar will present startling information about the assassination, the investigation and the implications behind what may have truly happened.
