Subject: RE: Dave Gaddy's Obit
Dave will be greatly missed. He was a friend and colleague who I first came into contact with on assignment at Fort Meade, Md. while serving in the military in 1958. We stayed in contact over the years exchanging information about intelligence operations during the Civil War. |
The CW community should be ever grateful for the study about Confederate intelligence contained in "Come Retribution: The Confederate Secret Service and the Assassination of Lincoln" co-authored by William Tidwell, James Hall, and Dave Gaddy. Published in 1988, it still remains to date as the only in-depth study of Confederate intelligence operations.
Over the years, I know Dave was gathering information regarding Confederate signal operations; but, as far as I know, it was never published. I wonder what the status of his work in that area was before he passed, and whether that information will ever see the light of day.
