Spies of the Civil war

What Spies did in the civil war

Women were better spies at the time because nobody would of thought that women would be spying. Spies were good at getting information and were really good at staying under cover. Spies in the civil war would do what they believe in and risk their lives for it. Spies sometimes fought in wars also they were really big in the Confederates and Union.

Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman saved 300 slaves and her elderly parents. Harriet was also the first to lead a military expedition. She died in 1913. Harriet Tubman was really hated by the south because she kept on saving slaves from the south and the south could never catch her so it made them angry. Harriet was really believed that slavery was bad because she kept on going back to the south and helping slaves escape.

The affect of spies now

There are still spies now. Spies had a big impact on the Civil war because they got information they needed. Also that they helped a lot during the war. People probably still spy now and do in what they believe in just like the ones in the civil war.
