13 Assassination Scene at Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee

The western exterior of the Lorraine Hotel has changed little since 1968. Parked in the courtyard are two cars similar to those used to transport Martin Luther King (a 1968 white Cadillac) and his entourage (a 1959 Dodge Royal) to Memphis on that fateful trip. The wreath in front of room 306 marks where Martin Luther King was shot by James Earl Ray from a rooming house across the street. The single bullet came from a Remington Model 760 .30-6 caliber rifle.
