Title
Montreal, City of Secrets: Confederate Operations in Montreal During the American Civil War
Abstract
The author outlines how Montreal hosted the Confederacy’s largest foreign secret service base during the American Civil War, and how Montreal banks and other Canadian financial institutions held a million dollars or more in hard currency or gold to fund clandestine Confederate activities. He also investigates the role Montreal played in the level of corruption in the Northern war effort, as suggested by the names registered at the St. Lawrence Hall - the city’s finest hotel. He argues that opposition to U.S. President Lincoln from both parties ran deeper than is generally acknowledged.
