Civil War Spies

It's 1866 and the Civil War has just ended. Espionage in the Civil War was quite common and unbelievably easy. Newspapers constantly ran accounts of what the armies were planning. In some cases, military leaders planted false newspaper stories, knowing that the opposing army would read them. The best spies of the era were women. Women were considered harmless, and perhaps they took advantage of that assumption. Most of the spy records in the North and the South were destroyed to protect the spies and their families. Countless more spies took their secrets with them to their graves. This interactive electronic fieldtrip challenges students to examine historical tricks of the trade during wartime. Students are challenged to use critical thinking, decision making, and questioning strategies as they explore the Civil War.
