This is a 33 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Union Spies & Espionage. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Though neither the Union nor the Confederacy had a formal military intelligence network during the Civil War, each side obtained crucial information from spying or espionage operations. From early in the war, the Confederacy set up a spy network in Washington, D.C., home to many southern sympathizers.
Once Richmond fell, much of the information detailing espionage activity was destroyed and lost to history. The Union had no centralized military intelligence agency, individual generals took charge of intelligence gathering for their own operations until Chicago detective Allan Pinkerton set up the first Union espionage organization in mid-1861.
The Union network was much more extensive than the Southern network, as they tapped into the slave population for information, a group more than willing to undermine the Confederacy.
