Dave Hubbard, Grant Cottage’s Visitor Center & Group Sales Manager, will present a sequel to his 2017 program “Secret Agents in Hoop Skirts: Women Spies of the Civil War.”  This season’s program will explore espionage during the Civil War, undertaken by men spying for either the Confederate or Union forces. Join Dave to learn about the growth of intelligence-gathering organizations on each side such as the Bureau of Military Intelligence in the North and the Signal Corps in the South.

The suggested donation for Grant Cottage Porch Programs is $5 per person. Our events are supported with funding from the New York State Park and Trail Partnership Program (NYSPTPP) and New York’s Environmental Protection Fund.
