Description

The J.F.K. assassination is considered one of the most notorious acts of violence in our nation’s history. When President Johnson was inaugurated, one of the first acts he took part in was the founding of the Warren Commission. The Warren Commission’s goal was to look into the J.F.K. assassination, to see if truly Lee Harvey Oswald was the killer. While initially positively received, the commission has come under fire in years after for its inaccuracies and overall methods used. Numerous other governmental groups have taken a look into the J.F.K. assassination, but one non-government man, Jim Garrison took his own approach to the assassination, and even took a man to court for conspiracy to kill President Kennedy. In summary, the main purpose of my proposed conference would be to explore the differences between the Warren Commission and the Garrison Investigation.
