    I'd expected that one sooner & in quantity.

    I expect Lincolns detractors would use the event as a example of what a cruel violent brute he was.

    How did it effect !Lincoln's standing being a Vampire Hunter? I think most thought his Vampire hunting exploits were bad @$$! So his defending himself would be seen in the same light.

    I think he would be the perfect leader for the post Civil War U.S. Balancing bringing the former rebellious states back into the Union, with starting the process of insuring the blacks would keep their freedom.

    Booth misses with his Derrenger pistol or it misfires. He attempts to attack with his knife & in the struggle with Major Rathbone & Lincoln Booth is either killed by a fist blow, or goes off the balcony on to his head, dying from a broken neck or concussion. How does this affect perceptions of Lincoln in the short and long term, and how would it affect him personally?
