This important, one-of-a-kind collection documents one of the most significant and tragic events in the history of our nation - the assassination of President John F. Kennedy as his motorcade passed through downtown Dallas. The seemingly inexplicable murder of the young president over 50 years ago on November 22, 1963, remains shrouded in mystery and doubts, with many still believing conspiracy theories surrounding his assassination. Yet, the only trial ever to focus on a conspiracy surrounding the assassination took place in New Orleans in 1967, headed by then-District Attorney Jim Garrison. This famed trial would be immortalized by Oliver Stone in the 1991 film JFK.

The historic files offered here have been compiled from the personal collection of the late Jim Garrison. In 1969, when Garrison's Conspiracy-To-Kill-Kennedy trial collapsed, his entire case that the accused, Clay Shaw, had participated in an assassination plot turned out to be based on nothing more than the unreliable story of a single witness. The JFK/Jim Garrison Collection contains a series of records both from the trial itself and the fallout following its collapse, including part of the missing files of the Clay Shaw deposition.

Most incredibly, this exclusive collection contains not one, but two copies of the infamous Zapruder film of the assassination. Shot by private citizen Abraham Zapruder with a home-movie camera, this film is a complete film of the shooting, and it served as an important part of the Warren Commission investigations of the assassination. Besides the film bought by the United States government for the National Archives, these are the only copies of the film to have ever been on the market. These two films, perhaps the most famous films in non-professional film history, are fully documented and were copied in the United Kingdom specifically for Garrison.
