Replaced spark plugs, now car won't start

1968 Ford Galaxie 500. Before I did this, the
car started right up. After I replaced them, I
could not get the car to start. It wants to
start, but I do not get a spark. After taking
them out and replacing them, I got the car to
start ONCE. Then again it won't start and I
don't have a spark.
I disconnected the battery. I replaced each
spark plug one at a time, I know each is in

I didn't touch the cool wire or distributor points. I guess I can check it anyway. Thanks for your help. Any other ideas would be great as well.
I meant coil wire
