What are the names of famous male spies of the civil war?
There were many spies during the American Civil War. Some of the better known male spies were Lafayette Baker, Timothy Webster, and Henry Harrison.
Spies were common in the civil war, ranging from male to female, confederate to union. Many died, if a spy was caught they were hung most likely after being questioned with what information they knew. Both the North and South had a number of spies, they relied on them. The Civil War was a very spy consis war. As to how many were killed, I don't really know. Sorry..
