Event Details

Timothy Webster began his career as a New York City policeman. In the mid-1850s, he left the police department and took a job for Allan Pinkerton with his newly formed detective agency. It was as a Pinkerton detective that Webster helped uncover a plot to assassinate President-elect Abraham Lincoln in 1861.
 
Webster went on to serve the United States as a spy in the Civil War. For a time he was the Union’s top agent, but his career came to an abrupt end when he was betrayed and became the first spy executed in the Civil War.
 
Meet author Corey Recko in the Great Hall and learn more about the life of this amazing historical figure.
 
Copies of A Spy for the Union will be available for purchase and autograph by the author.
