1867~ William Henry Seward, Secretary of State and one of the targets of the Lincoln Assassination Conspiracy. He had been severely wounded in a knife attack by one of the conspirators. He played a major role in the ALASKA PURCHASE in 1868. Most reaction was favorable but some thought he was foolish and termed the purchase, "Seward's Folly"..guess the last laugh is on them!!!
