This was conducted by uniformed Confederates who had the good fortune to
operate against Home Guards and the Invalid Corps.Many texts on this as

about this uniformed and armed incursion on the Union's northern border
was that it was an outgrowth of a large and complicated Confederate intelligence
operation conducted in Canada throughout the war.
