    Confederate Captain Thomas H. Hines Carte de Visite, H. A. Balch, Memphis, Tennessee backmark with identifying pencil inscription on verso. Very good condition. Secret agent Thomas Henry Hines (1838 - 1898) is appropriately portrayed here in a civilian suit as he operated primarily in Canada and the North. A Kentuckian who rode with Morgan until 1863, Hines worked tirelessly on the "Northwestern Conspiracy". This ultimately failed scheme was to have liberated Confederate prisoners-of-war while simultaneously pushing the pro-Southern Copperheads of the Upper Midwest into a state of open rebellion against the Federal Government.
