The impending Holiday release of the new movie The Greatest Showman about legendary entrepreneur P. T. Barnum reminded me of this story from the old 1961 Classics Illustrated issue The Civil War I've featured before; this time the story concerns a lesser-known but no less real episode involving activities of the Confederate Secret Service:

I remember watching something on the Military History Channel that highlighted this. Very cool to see it in comic form.
