Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, but it might not be an obvious fact to many that Oswald and Kennedy actually had their respective funerals on the same day.
Three days after Oswald killed Kennedy and one day after Oswald was shot and killed by Jack Ruby, the two had their funerals on Nov. 25, 1963, although they obviously couldn’t have been more opposite in scale.
While Kennedy had a large funeral procession through Washington, D.C. and a burial at Arlington National Cemetery that drew a nationwide audience on TV and was attended by thousands, family and friends of Oswald gathered for a smaller farewell in Fort Worth, Texas.
