On Friday, Nov. 22, 1963, in broad daylight, at half past noon, and despite his Secret Service protection, President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot in the head while sitting in his midnight-blue 1961 Lincoln Continental open limousine as it slowly motorcaded through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, TX. (President Kennedy also received several nonfatal bullet wounds. Texas Gov. John Connally, seated on a jump seat in front of JFK, suffered multiple nonfatal bullet wounds.)
