The evening of Friday, November 22, 1963 the Spartanburg Journal published an extra edition to inform Spartanburg citizens of President Kennedy’s assassination. This publication states that Kennedy was shot at approximately 12:30 pm (CST) by an unknown assassin and was pronounced dead at 1:00 pm (CST). At the time of publication, there was no word on when Vice President Johnson would take the oath of office to succeed President Kennedy, and Lee Harvey Oswald was in custody for the murder of a Dallas policeman. Oswald was also being interrogated to determine if he had any connection with Kennedy’s assassination.
