Lack of Security
Lincoln Made Many Public Appearances and Speeches
What about General Grant? Could Lincoln be at fault?
Many people think that General Grant could have saved Lincoln's life and jumped in to fight off the assassin. Yes, he could have but Lincoln brought him to the show as a companion, to enjoy the show, not to be his body guard.
Furthermore, people think Lincoln is at his own fault because he had made so many speeches and so many public appearances during his presidency. Knowing that he is the President of the United States, it his job to give speecehs and make public appearanes. Without making these, people would be so critical of him and therefore, he would not be doing his job effectively.
