This is the assassination of John F. Kennedy, as told by those who covered it as reporters and photographers, police officers, and federal agents.
Hugh Aynesworth is a reporter and author who covered the Assassination for the Dallas Morning News. He is recognized as one of the leading experts on the subject. For the 50th anniversary he interviewed 28 individuals who intersected with history that fateful weekend in 1963.
We hear from the young surgeon who operated on President Kennedy at Parkland Hospital, the man who drove Lee Harvey Oswald to work, the Secret Service agent who jumped on the Kennedy limousine after bullets hit the President, the newspaper reporter who ended up driving Lee Harvey Oswald's mother from to Dallas hours after the assassination, and from the photographer who took the Pulitzer Prize winning photograph of Jack Ruby shooting Oswald.
