Thanksgiving this year falls on a somber day for Dallas – the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Forty-nine years ago today, on Nov. 22, 1963, Kennedy was assassinated during a motorcade through downtown.
The Warren Commission found that Lee Harvey Oswald fired at the former president from a sixth floor window of a former school book depository that is now a museum dedicated to the historic day.
To commemorate the assassination, the Sixth Floor Museum will be open today.
Meanwhile, Dallas is already making plans for next year's 50th anniversary.
And according to the Associated Press, SMU and the soon-to-open George W. Bush Presidential Center will also both hold programs for the 50th anniversary -- including possibly a look at the theories of how he died.
SMU political science professor James Hollifield tells The Dallas Morning News that a program on the Warren Commission's findings "is tentative but will probably happen."
The commission said Oswald acted alone. Some have questioned its findings.
