This is a 25 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Civil War - Union Secret Service. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
At the outset of the Civil War, neither the Union nor the Confederacy had a centralized military intelligence department — and yet the need for information on enemy troop movements, political developments and even simple things like geography was immediate. A number of secret organizations emerged.
The outbreak of war led to an explosion in intelligence-gathering activity and innovation on both sides.
Codes and code-breaking were all the rage. Spies on both sides wiretapped telegraph lines and flew hot-air balloons linked to cables for real-time aerial reconnaissance.
When President Lincoln summoned McClellan to WDC late that summer, the general put the detective in charge for intelligence for his Army of the Potomac, and Pinkerton set up the first Union espionage operation in mid-1861.
The presentation covers the following:
