Many spied. Brinks men were hired, but others also spied. There was a southern actress who spied for several years. She is buried in the military cemetery at the Presido in San Francisco.
Various people spied for the Union. The Pinkerson men did work for them and other civilians. At the time there were touring theater companies and several had actors/ actresses that spied because they moved through the south. One interesting spy was Charles Heidsick a Frenchman who was from a wealthy champagne family. He disguised himself as a bartender and worked on the Mississippi steamers. He carried info for the confederates.
Alan Pinkerton headed the Union intelligence service.
