A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on.
-John F. Kennedy
This two hour (1.5 mile, A to B) walking tour is based on the book Dr. Mary’s Monkey by Edward T. Haslam. You’ll investigate an unsolved murder, a secret laboratory in New Orleans and a cancer-causing virus and how they are all linked to Lee Harvey Oswald, the JFK Assassination and emerging global epidemics.
2013 marked the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's assassination. Come walk in the footsteps of the accused and decide for yourself if there are New Orleans links to the biggest crime of the 20th century.
