On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was shot while riding in a caravan in Dealy Plaza in Texas. He was rushed to Parkland hospital where several attempts were made to save his life, but he eventually expired. A coffin was needed to carry his body back to Washington, D.C. Later, that coffin disappeared from public eye, and official wear-a-bouts where not known until the late 90's.
