Editor says, in this post we explore an alternative scenario to the Wikipedia report Ralph Yarborough rode in the Dallas motorcade where John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963. Yarborough was in the same convertible as Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, Lady Bird Johnson, and United States Secret Service agent Rufus Youngblood, who protected all three of them with his body when shots were fired at Kennedy. only two cars away from the presidential limousine. A sobbing Yarborough announced Kennedy's death at Parkland Memorial Hospital by saying: "Excalibur has sunk beneath the waves".
Please note that we have repurposed significant amount of content from John Simkin's article on the Education Forium which reports - On the morning of the assassination Johnson attempted to get the seating arrangements changed. For some strange reason he wanted Connally to be in his car and for Yarborough to go with Kennedy. This was a surprising idea as this would have given extra status to his political opponent. Connally clearly was not part of the conspiracy as he insisted in going in Kennedy's car. Editorial comments are entered in [light green] typeface.
