Most of what we know regarding the Civil War today pertains to famous battles – Antietam, Gettysburg – or famous people – Mosby, Grant, or Lee. Many stories remain untold; shrouded in mystery. This book is an attempt to shed light on the contribution of one such entity which in innovative ways fought to preserve the rights of its fellow citizens. This was the Confederate Secret Services. Special operation units are nothing new to American history. Long before there were Ranger Battalions, Jedburgh Detachments, or the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), there existed numerous special operations detachments that made up the entire Confederate Secret Services. These brave men and women comprised the covert fighting ability of the Confederacy. Of all the other special operations entities that were created to establish ‘a better state of the peace’ that had previously existed, none other made such a massive contribution to the war effort.
