150 Years Ago

A group of bitter dead-enders conspired to assassinate President Lincoln and his cabinet. They killed the President and wounded the Secretary of State, William Seward.

My knowledge of history is very weak, did anyone besides the shooter himself and what was it,'the doctor that treated him'(?) ever pay for the crime?
A lot like the Kennedy assassination it seems, where the plotters escaped completely.
Imagine how deep the changes that could have taken place if the plotters had been jailed too.
