This is crazy! I'll make sure he doesn't get away with this anti-slavery dilemma!
Lincoln wins election
If I can get some accomplice to help aid in this kidnapping, I can surely bring him to Richmond and exchange him for Confederate prisoners-of-war.
General Robert E Lee surrenders his confederate troop to Union General Ulysses S Grant.
Fine if this is how it's gonna be, I'll just fight harder!!!
Tonight would be perfect if I could've killed Ulysses S. Grant too.
The plan is kill, kill, kill. Once we get into the theater I'll execute the plan. You each have a task to do. Kill Secretary of State Herold and Powell, and Vice President Johnson is you Atzerodt. Got it?
We'll show them slavery is moral and just!!
Atzerodt leaves Vice President severely injured but managed to survive, Herold was waiting outside to lead Atzerodt to safety but Atzerodt never came.
