basically means “the south is avenged”. Eight blocks away Secretary of State Seward is attacked but not killed. The gun was jammed so he was stabbed in the face with his neck brace keeping the knife from going any deeper. From this moment, Booth had twelve days to live. Lincoln is brought across the street from the theatre to a boarding house where he had to lay diagonally because he was measured 193 CM. (6’3’’). He’s still alive at this time but not responding as the bullet in is his caused a blood clot. Around midnight David Herald meets up with Booth and left Lewis Powell behind. Booth and him go to find a doctor when Booth broke his leg from his horse falling on it. They arrive to Dr. Samuel Mudd's house to get some help. Lincoln died on April 15th, 1865, at 7:21 A.M. Everyone in the room gave him a moment of silence out of respect for this great man. Booth Broke had a clean break on his left fibula. Dr. Mudd decided to house and help Booth through his injury. Booth was in a splint and used a crutch to walk as he left Mudd's house late afternoon of April 15th. He headed to Samuel Cox’s house. Cox is a confederate underground man. Cox recognizes Booth and knows what he has done, so he helps the men.
