The Grassy Knoll is a vantage point over the route of the ill-fated 1963 JFK Motorcade.

Origins

The term was coined by journalist Merriman Smith, who was riding behind John F. Kennedy in the motorcade.

Sidelining

Shooters were reported here, but the Warren Commission's official narrative claimed that Lee Harvey Oswald was a "lone nut" gunman, who shot from the Texas School Book Depository building.

Admission

In 2003, James Files admitted on camera that he was one of a team who shot John F. Kennedy, and that he was on the grassy knoll.[1]

Cultural references

Alluding to the deep state, Bill Hicks suggested every new US President was shown "a shot of the Kennedy assassination from an angle you've never seen before ... that looks suspiciously like it's from the grassy knoll".[2]
