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.
Nothing Beats Eyewitness Accounts
This book has the key ingredient missing from thousands of JFK assassination books--eyewitnesses...seasoned, professional reporters who were there.
Nothing tops the emotional sledgehammer of reading a chronological account of the events of Nov. 22, 1963, written in first person by the local reporters who were present for every moment. Entertainment columnist Tony Zoppi's account of how he helped wheel the casket right up to the trauma room door is a jaw dropper. JFK's secretary Evelyn Lincoln calling the Morning News newsroom from the Trade Mart to ask what happened and where was the president was equally stirring.
A riveting account.
