Remarks & Notes 
The Dallas, Garland & Northeastern Railroad "Miller Turn" is seen passing through Downtown Dallas at arguably one of the most historic locations in American history. The location is Dealey Plaza and on November 22nd, 1963 was the site of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The president was visiting Dallas for a campaign tour. Tens of thousands of Texans were out in the streets to see Kennedy pass in his Lincoln Continental convertible. Just after the motorcade turned on Elm from Houston, three shots rang out and the president was fatally wounded. Texas Governor John Connally was also struck and injured. The entire scene is in the photo. Where the two white cars are driving down the road is where the limo was traveling when the President was shot. The eight-story brick building (the one on the left) is the Texas School Book Depository where employee Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly shot from the sixth floor Southeast corner window with a 6.5×52mm Carcano Model 91/38 rifle. The Grassy Knoll to the left of the cars is where the entire incident was photographed by Abraham Zapruder. The wooden fence at the top of the knoll is where some conspiracy theorists surmise a second shooter was hiding. The interlocking tower is where Union Terminal employee Lee Bowers was working when he observed unusual activity around the parking lot before the shooting and two suspicious-looking men near the triple underpass at the time of the shooting. He reportedly also told his supervisor that he saw one of the men loading what appeared to be a rifle into a car after the shooting. Bowers died in a car accident in 1966, which is another topic of debate with conspiracy theorists. Whether or not the official report that stated Oswald was acting alone was true or there was actually much more to the event has become one of the most debated topics in American history.
