Episode 10 - A Secret About the Service

I want to talk for a minute about the image I made for this one, mainly because there isn't much to add to the content, other than to say that I had to look it up the first time I heard it because I didn't really believe it.

But back to the image - this is one of those pictures that may not have come across as clearly as some of my other weird Photoshops for this show (that's supposed to be an earpiece), but it works even better if you know who that is in the picture with Lincoln. It's Allan Pinkerton, famed creator of the Pinkerton Detectives, the world's first private investigation firm. The Pinkertons, and specifically Kate Warne, the first female private detective, uncovered and foiled a plot to assassinate Lincoln while he was on his way to take office. So Pinkerton as a fake Secret Service agent has a certain amount of poetry in it. And yes, don't look Kate Warne up, because she's going to get her own episode at some point. WHY IS THERE NOT A MOVIE ABOUT HER?
