Fascinating story. I think that Confederate efforts in Europe represent one of the untold stories of the Civil War. The story of John Slidell and the Erlanger Loan of 1863 has all the stuff of a great espionage thriller: spies, double-agents, a beautiful woman, money, with the outcome of a war and the destiny of a nation hanging in the balance.
