On the evening of April 14, 1865, while attending a specialperformance of the comedy, "Our American Cousin," President AbrahamLincoln was shot. Accompanying him at Ford's Thea…ter that nightwere his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, a twenty-eight year-old officernamed Major Henry R. Rathbone, and Rathbone's fiancee, ClaraHarris. After the play was in progress, John Wilkes Booth with adrawn derringer pistol stepped into the presidential box, aimed,and fired. The president slumped forward. The assassin, John WilkesBooth, dropped the pistol and waved a dagger. Rathbone lunged athim, and though slashed in the arm, forced the killer to therailing. Booth leapt from the balcony and caught the spur of hisleft boot on a flag draped over the rail, and shattered a bone inhis leg on landing. Though injured, he rushed out the back door,and disappeared into the night on horseback. A doctor in theaudience immediately went upstairs to the box. The bullet hadentered through Lincoln's left ear and lodged behind his right eye.He was paralyzed and barely breathing. He was carried across TenthStreet, to a boarding-house opposite the theater, but the doctors'best efforts failed. Nine hours later, at 7:22 AM on April 15th,Lincoln died. At almost the same moment Booth fired the fatal shot,his accomplice, Lewis Paine, attacked Lincoln's Secretary of State,William Henry Seward. Seward lay in bed, recovering from a carriageaccident. Paine entered the mansion, claiming to have a delivery ofmedicine from the Secretary's doctor. Seward's son, Frederick, wasbrutally beaten while trying to keep Paine from his father's door.Paine slashed the Secretary's throat twice, then fought his waypast Seward's son Augustus, an attending hospital corps veteran,and a State Department messenger. Paine escaped into the night,believing his deed complete. However, a metal surgical collar savedSeward from certain death. The Secretary lived another seven years,during which he retained his seat with the Johnson administration,and purchased Alaska from Russia in 1867. There were at least fourconspirators in addition to Booth involved in the mayhem. Booth wasshot and captured while hiding in a barn near Bowling Green,Virginia, and died later the same day, April 26, 1865. Fourco-conspirators, Paine, George Atzerodt, David Herold, and MarySurratt, were hanged at the gallows of the Old Penitentiary, on thesite of present-day Fort McNair, on July 7, 1865.

There are so many versions that there isn't really one story. Lincoln had not wanted to go to the theatre, but his wife was especially keen, and invited US Grant and his wife…. Lincoln considered Grant to be an assassination target, but not himself. When Grant cried off (supposedly because his wife was too over-awed), Lincoln gave his bodyguard the night off. Or... the bodyguard was there in the Presidential Box, but the show was so good that he was watching the stage when he should have been watching the door. Or... there wasn't a bodyguard. The theatre policeman was told to watch the entrance to the Presidential Box, but he had gone out for a drink. As for the conspiracy theories - that it was a plot hatched by the dying Confederate government, or even by Vice-President Johnson - there's a whole website full of these. 'The story'? You'll never find one.
