Next to Dallas and Washington, D.C., New Orleans is perhaps the city that has been most mentioned over the past few days, in coverage of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

That's with good reason - the city is the birthplace of Lee Harvey Oswald and the city where charges were filed against the only man ever to be accused in connection with a conspiracy to murder the president - Clay Shaw.

Click the gallery above for some of the local spots where Lee Harvey Oswald, Clay Shaw, former District Attorney Jim Garrison and other figures in the JFK case lived and worked.
