A Spy for the Union
Corey Recko talked about his book A Spy for the Union: The Life and Execution of Timothy Webster. Timothy Webster was a policeman and then a Pinkerton detective before becoming a spy for the Union during the Civil War. He traveled to the Confederate capital multiple times and made many connections high up in the Confederate military and government. He was the Union’s top spy when he was betrayed by fellow spies in 1862 and became the first spy executed in the Civil War. close
