1963: U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson establishes a commission headed up by Chief Justice Earl Warren to investigate the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The Warren Commission, as it unofficially became known, would present its final report to Johnson on Sept. 24, 1964, concluding that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing Kennedy and wounding Texas Gov. John Connally and that Jack Ruby also acted alone when he killed Oswald a few days later.
