November in Dallasbrisk autumn air, falling leaves, work slows down as the holidays speed up and conspiracy theorists and local news networks gear up for arguably the city's most important holidayNovember 22, the anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963. That may seem blasphemous, but there's no denying that some locals celebrate the most infamous date in Dallas' history with religious zeal. To provide some fresh perspective on the event, the Sixth Floor Museum is hosting Voices From History: Dallas Law Enforcement, a new exhibit which takes an in-depth look at that historic day through artifacts and accounts provided by Dallas police and sheriff's deputies. Guns, clothing and actual equipment from the crime scene kit make up the physical display, while two videos take visitors back to hear police officers describe their vantage points of events. Testimonies from 14 officers cover the assassination from the mundane motorcade to the horrific discovery of a sniper's perch in the Texas School Book Depository. Voices From History: Dallas Law Enforcement opens Monday and runs through August 5, 2007, at The Sixth Floor Museum, 411 Elm St. The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and students, free for children 6 and under. Call 214-747-6660 or visit jfk.org.
