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.
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.
Intelligence gathering for the Confederates was focused on Alexandria, Virginia, and the surrounding area. Greenhow delivered reports to Jordan via the “Secret Line,” the name for the system used to get letters, intelligence reports, and other documents across the Potomac and Rappahannock rivers to Confederate officials.
The Confederacy’s Signal Corps was devoted primarily to communications and intercepts, but it also included a covert agency called the Confederate Secret Service Bureau.
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.
