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.
