19. The motorcade route was not changed.

with an inaccurate map of President Kennedy’s motorcade route.

The morning of President Kennedy’s arrival in Dallas, the Dallas Morning News printed a map of the motorcade route that failed to show the turn from Main to Houston, then Houston to Elm and Elm on to the highway. According to the map, the parade would go straight down Main and on to the highway from there.

The problem is that you cannot get onto the highway from Main Street. Only Elm would allow the motorcade to get where it needed to go. Unfortunately, this misprint has been used to “prove” that the route was changed in order to bring the president’s limo closer to Oswald’s work, and since Oswald could not have changed the route, it most have been someone powerful in the government, who also covered up this fact afterwards.

It should also be noted that the Dallas Times Herald had the correct map for the motorcade route, which is why conspiracy theorists ignore it.
