The Mysterious Life Of Lee Harvey Oswald

November 1, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Lee Harvey Oswald was only 24 years when he was killed.  But his 24 years of life are as mysterious and controversial as the life of any 24-year-old ever!

Lee Harvey Oswald

So who was he? Was Lee Harvey Oswald a “semi-educated hillbilly with delusions of grandeur” (in the words of Stephen King) or a super smart, highly trained CIA assassin, or a Mafia hit man or simply a “patsy” who somehow didn’t know what he was doing?

His life had been such a failure that the few official documents about him are testaments to his existence as a loser. School report cards that indicate his unwillingness to comply with rules and his inability to stop committing acts of violence.  A string of firings from menial jobs.  Wife abuse.  Forced psychiatric care.  A wobbly military record.

And then came 11/22/63.

In this absolutely riveting multimedia presentation we will use the actual documented record of Oswald’s life to help build a clear picture of a muddied man.
