The Blue and the Gray Undercover
This book is a collection of eighteen short stories about true spy adventures during the American Civil War, all based on civilian spies and their covert activities. These individuals were men, women, children and slaves who helped either the Union or Confederate cause. The stories are simple in content and do not have much character development, but I did learn many facts about spy activities during the Civil War of which I was previously unaware. I came to wonder whether the outcome of the Civil War and the history following that cataclysmic event would have been the same had these clandestine affairs not been undertaken.
