Unlike Abraham, Julius wanted to control as much land and power as possible. Although Julius Cesar wanted a lot of scrutinies; Julius thought it was best for Rome to have peace.

Cassius never wanted to be below or feel less than anybody.
The conspiracy to kill Abraham Lincoln was not a one-man job. Many of the Confederates did not like Lincoln's ways of thinking which resulted in hostility toward the president.
