RE: A Finger in Lincoln's Brain
Ed Steers thoroughly took apart the idea that Grant would have had a full military escort with him at the theater that night in his classic "Blood On The Moon". He noted that Gen. Grant had attended the theater with AL on previous occasions and as recently as March 1865 without any military guards.

If the author takes that stance, he might as well blame Robert Todd Lincoln and the myriad of others who turned down the president's invitation to Ford's that night...they might have stopped Booth.

Grant might have prevented the tragedy, or he would have been injured or killed himself. There is no way to know.
