Frozen By A Gunshot

Notoriously, everyone who was alive at the time remembers where they were when they heard that John F Kennedy had been shot. The shock of that moment was felt throughout the world. The place where it happened, Dealey Plaza in Dallas, has remained almost frozen in time since that day in 1963.

The Plaza is still lined by buildings of the era, dwarfed by the modern skyline behind, and many street signs remain as they were in 1963.

Visitors can see the grassy knoll that some believe was the position of the real assassin and the book depository from where Lee Harvey Oswald is supposed to have fired. A small plaque commemorates the events of the day, but the whole area is steeped in a sense of history.
