I am at the Library of Congress in Washington DC. I just read through the Dallas Morning News for the week that Kennedy was killed.

On Monday the Dallas Morning News simply speculated that the motorcade would travel down Main.

On Wednesday the Dallas Morning News stated that it would indeed travel straight down Main.

On Thursday, November 21, 1963, the Dallas Morning News had a map with the motorcade going straight down Main and not making any turns.

Mayor Earl Cabell of Dallas was the brother of Air Force General C.P. Cabell, who was Allen Dullesís Deputy Director at the CIA.

Mayor Earl Cabellís Administration made a change in the route that President Kennedyís motorcade would take. Instead of traveling straight down Main through the middle of Dealey Plaza, which was the route published in the Dallas Morning News on November 21, the motorcade turned right on Houston and went over to the Texas School Book Depository at Elm and Houston. It then turned left and headed down Elm. President Kennedy was shot and killed on Elm.

Someone on the forum had said that the motorcade route was not changed, and that it was said all that week that it would be going down Houston and then Elm street.

The motorcade route was changed at the last hour to both make the assassination possible and to be able to accuse Oswald.

No, the route was planned in advance. The evidence for this changed route theory is a small map on the cover of the Dallas Morning News. The reason it doesn't show the detour through Elm Street is because the map is so small and hasn't been drawn to scale. The previous evening, the Dallas Times-Herald ran a much larger map which showed the real motorcade route.

You are correct, Mr. Thirdeye. The logical (and very little longer) route
to the Trade Mart was Main to Industrial to Trade Mart. IT WAS TOTALLY
ILLOGICAL TO BLOCK STEMMONS FREEWAY DURING THE NOON HOUR,
WHICH CAUSED A TRAFFIC JAM FOR MANY MILES. The myth of the
changed route MAP is one of the few things McAdams has correct.
