n a deep-laid plot. Some reports erroneously stated that an at-tempt was made on the life of Secretary of War, EdwinM. Stanton, and a great many newspapers stated em-phatically that Secretary of State, Seward, was dead.Booth was reported captured alive in about a dozen dif-ferent places, and John Surratt was generally accusedof being Sewards assassin. Later editions of newspapers often corrected earlierissues, but even then many minor details which were in-accurately reported wereallowed to be accepted asfacts, and some readerslikely never got an ac-curate newspaper ac-count of the tragedy. Some of the moreglaring errors follow: Hour Lincoln Died One dispatch an-nounces that the presi-dent died at 12Yz p.m.Another an hour later,states that he is stillliving, but dying slowly.We go to press withoutknowing the exact truth.
