Subject: RE: Telegraph insecurity during CW

Message Detail:
Ray, I was just alerted to a message in the Official Records that correlates with your response. In October 1863, a Union spy in the Shenandoah Valley reported to Col. George Sharpe of General Meade's intelligence staff, the BMI, that some prisoners taken in West Virginia were on a mission "for the purpose of tapping the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad at Back Creek." Which I take it means tapping the telegraph line of the RR.
