Over the course of the last few weeks, we have looked at a number of different scenarios, as well as suspects, in the November 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.  Your assignment for this midterm examination is to tell me:  (1) whether there was a conspiracy to assassinate JFK, and (2) who was behind the conspiracy.  In addition, you must present credible evidence to support your theory.  This is not an “I think Bobby Kennedy was behind the assassination because he wanted to be President” type of paper.  You are to construct a logical, well-reasoned, and well-supported argument that proves your hypothesis.  In short, you are building a case (or geometric proof) so that at the end of the paper the reader will say “QED”, the mystery is solved.  Each factual statement should reference a valid source (i.e., Warren Commission Report, Crossfire, House Assassination Subcommittee Report, etc.)This is a TAKE HOME midterm examination.  It is due, as a hard copy, IN CLASS on March 25, 2015.  No late submissions will be accepted.  Your assignment is to answer the questions above.  Your answer should take the form of 8 to 10 typewritten pages.  You may use the references already uploaded to Moodle, as well as any other references that you choose as long as they are authoritative.  Your answer should also follow the Guidelines for Written Assignments contained in the syllabus.
