The assassination attempt of William Henry Seward is almost totally incorrect. A servant met Lewis Powell, who was pretending to bring Steward medicine, at the door and tried to stop him from entering. Fred told Powell to come back later because his father was asleep. Fanny, who had dark haired, opened the door to tell Fred that their father was awake. Fred closed the door on her and turned back to Powell, who shot at his head. The gun misfired and he bashed Fred's skull in, leaving a hole and exposing his brain. Powell entered the dark room and shoved Fanny aside as she tried to stop him from attacking Seward.

Gus and the soldier nurse entered and fought with Powell, who stabbed both about 7 times each before fleeing the scene.
