Description

Based on first-person accounts from Dallas Morning News journalists who witnessed the assassination, this gripping story chronicles President John F. Kennedy's fatal visit to Dallas hour-by-hour, offering a fresh look at history.

Shortly after the assassination, reporters, photographers and editors assigned to the story wrote down their experience in a collection of notes that have been hidden from public view for decades. Now, you'll experience the stories of staffers as they rode in the president's motorcade, talked with Abraham Zapruder on the grassy knoll in Dealey Plaza, waited for updates at Parkland Hospital, covered the scene at the Trade Mart, followed police to the Texas Theatre and chronicled Oswald's shooting in the basement of the police station.

This one-of-a-kind volume includes copies of the original typewritten, hand-edited notes, giving readers behind-the-scenes access to the first draft of history.
