Let us not forget Belle Boyd a Union spy living in Richmond who entertained Confederate officers in her home and told secret Federal agents the size of their armies and where they were. Because of her sympathy to the Union cause, after the war or in the last months, her house was burned to the ground.

On Longstreet's spy Harrison, he did participate in Pickett's charge and survived. Later he went back to play Shakespeare. One of Gen. Longstreet's aides Maj. Sorrell, went to see a play and recognized Harrison. Later they talked backstage and that is the last time Maj. Sorrell saw him. (This is mentioned during the credits at the end of Gettysburg)
