End dates...?[edit]

Isn't it somewhat misleading to list all their end dates as of 1865? I realize that's when Lincoln was assassinated and therefore his cabinet came to an end, but some of these men continued in their positions under Johnson. For example, Seward was Sec of State until 1869. (you'll note I actually changed his date thinking it was a typo. I changed it back) Anyway, would it not be more appropriate to change their end dates to reflect the actual date they left that office, and not just the date they were no longer under Lincoln? - theWOLFchild 08:24, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
