Sarah interestingly enough, Lincoln wasn't the only one targeted in the assassination. Seward and Johnson were also going to be killed. The guy who was assigned to kill Johnson decided not to do it, and the guy who was assigned to Seward made a really good attempt. He stabbed Steward in the cheek, and the only reason Seward didn't die was because he'd recently been in a carriage accident and had a metal plate in his mouth. So says Kearns Goodwin, anyway. She was eating sushi when she wrote it.
