Following the previous day’s visit to San Antonio, Houston and Fort Worth, Friday, November 22 was supposed to be an equally full day. After a breakfast speech in Fort Worth, the President was to address several groups at the Dallas Trade Mart in the afternoon. A gala event was scheduled in Austin that evening. The trip would culminate with a visit to the LBJ ranch near Johnson City.
