Montreal, City of Secrets

Confederate Operations in Montreal During the American Civil War

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Barry Sheehy

Montréal hosted the Confederacy’s largest foreign secret service base during the Civil War. Montréal banks and other Canadian financial institutions held a million dollars or more in hard currency or gold to fund clandestine activities. When Jefferson Davis fled the US in 1865, Montréal welcomed him and his family. Overrun with refugees, soldiers of fortune, spies, assassins, bankers, and smugglers, Montréal was a pro “Secesh” town. The Lincoln kidnapping turned assassination plot was hatched in Montréal.
