Product Description

On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was murdered in front of hundreds of onlookers. For fifty years, the events of that day have been the subject of heated debate. The commission tasked with investigating the assassination published its findings the following year—Oswald had acted alone—but the report did little to quell conspiracy theorists. Chief Justice Warren calmly dismissed the criticism, assuring his fellow commission members that “history will prove that we are right.”

In this eye-opening account of the commission and its findings, History Will Prove Us Right tells the true and complete story of every aspect of the investigation from a uniquely first person perspective.
