Alias On the night that John Wilkes Booth killed President Abraham Lincoln, 20-year-old Lewis Powell burst into the house of William Seward, and attempted to assassinate the Secretary of State.

A former Confederate soldier, Powell's role in the Lincoln conspiracy has been the subject of a great deal of debate.
