      • But Lincoln had a very elongated head — had he been wearing his hat at the time, that hole *could* have been from the death bullet, I think (a bullet anywhere into the brain would have been lethal back then).

        • Not necessarily. It’s true that even minor wounds could potentially prove fatal if they got infected. What passed for medical care could kill you if the wounds didn’t. (Joseph Lister encountered a lot of controversy when he suggested that surgeons should sterilize their instruments between patients, oh and maybe wash their freakin’ hands.) But, if you managed to avoid infection, it’s truly amazing what the body can survive. Even today, there are people walking around with bullets, and a wide variety of other objects, stuck somewhere in their body, even the skull, because doctors finally figured out that in some cases the dangers of surgery outweighed any damage the object in question might do.
