11-22-1963: New Evidence
by Roy Widing
The Significance of 11-22-1963
November 22, 1963 is a day that forever changed the course of history. Adults of the time remember where they were and what they were doing when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
Now more than half a century later, many Americans continue to believe there was a conspiracy to kill President Kennedy and doubt suspected assassin Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. In his novel 11-22-1963, author Roy Widing shows how the mysterious murder of a president may still be solved using yet-unexamined evidence.
The Hunt For New Evidence
New evidence on President Kennedy’s assassination continues to surface nearly a half century after the event. One reason is because thousands were on hand to greet President Kennedy in Dallas on his November, 1963 visit. Another reason is that many who came to see the president brought cameras with them. As a result, a stream of freshly-discovered movies and photos are still coming out.
(2). That same year, still another home movie was found, with images of President Kennedy near Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. View what is now known as the Bob Yeargan film here and read about it here.
These three movies had never before been viewed by the public.
Official Beckons Film Holders To Come Forward
Former Sixth Floor Museum official Mr. Gary Mack remarked about the discovery of one film taken during President Kennedy’s last night alive: “When I look at these films, I see people in the background with cameras and I know those pictures from that angle have not surfaced yet…and I wonder where are these pictures? Why have these people not come forward?”
Given this continued stream of new evidence, is there more to be found? And how might this help solve the mysterious JFK assassination?
All Photos and Home Movies Are Important
Mr Mack said: “Everyone who captured the motorcade before the assassination thinks their pictures are unimportant. But to historians, all photos and home movies are important to possibly answer questions that will be asked in the future.”
Some accounts estimate 150,000 or more people lining the route of President Kennedy’s motorcade. Mr. Mack once encouraged anyone with film or photographs of the event to come forward.
