The top row of photos depicts the pistol owned by Lee Harvey Oswald, CE 143. The second row shows CE 573, the bullet purportedly fired at General Walker in April of 1963, though this is hotly disputed. The third row shows a section of curbstone which contained a nick where a bullet missed the motorcade, and a fragment of which injured bystander James Tague.
