Connally Thought Motorcade was Cancelled?

Recommended Posts

From the 11/29 Houston Post:

The motorcade arrangements came so late in the planning that Texas Gov. John B. Connally Jr, who accompanied the President on the short plane trip from Fort Worth to Dallas, reportedly was not aware of it. The governor was subsequently wounded in the three-shot fusillade fired by the assassin.

Rep. James C. Wright Jr.  D-Texas, of Fort Worth, who was also on the plane, said Thursday that during the flight the governor said he was under the impression the motorcade had been “cancelled” and that the party would go straight to the Trade Mart via a route avoiding the downtown area.
