Assassination and Commemoration: JFK, Dallas, and The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
Hardcover. Published by University of Oklahoma Press. 2013. Stephen Fagin.
The shots that killed President John F. Kennedy in November 1963 were fired from the sixth floor of a nondescript warehouse at the edge of Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas. That floor in the Texas School Book Depository became a museum exhibit in 1989 and was designated part of a National Historic Landmark District in 1993. This book recounts the slow and painful process by which a city and a nation came to terms with its collective memory of the assassination and its aftermath.
