Lewis Thornton Powell (AKA Lewis Paine) became well known by attempting to assassinate the secretary of state, William H. Seward in Layfayette Sq. Washington DC.
The major objective you need to know is that Powell was assigned to kill Seward by Booth, but failed. He became well known on the day of the attempt. April 14, 1865.
You need to remember me because I was apart of a conspiracy who aimed for the President, Vice President, and Secretary of state.
I was surprised that he had stayed and kept proceeding with the plan.
Lewis Powell hurt our nation because he was an ally with Booth. The murderer of President Lincoln.
Some extra info about Powell is that he was quiet, introverted, & very well liked by others. He often nursed, cared for the sick, and helped stray animals. He was also known for his short temper and for being stubborn.
