Could Lincoln’s Assassination Have Been Prevented?

If John Parker had been on duty, guarding President Lincoln on the evening of April 14, 1865, is it likely or not likely that the shooting could have been prevented? Explain your answer.

Why would Mr. Lincoln put himself at risk if it is true he allowed Parker to take a better seat, so he had a better view of the play but not of the President?

If Booth was willing to shoot the President in front of about 1,000 witnesses, what does that tell us about his commitment to do the deed?
