Booth was Unlucky

Booth made mistakes because he didn't plan to break his leg from jumping off the balcony after shooting Lincoln. When they went to Garrett's farm, John Garrett knew that something was wrong because Booth freaked out when he saw the calvary. John Garrett trapped him and herold in the tobacco barn. The Union showed up at the Garrett's and Herold surrendered and Booth got shot by one of the soldiers. Booth died that night at the Garrett's farm.
