The first female detective in the United States, Kate Warne born in 1833, grew up in Erin Cheung County, New York. Not much is found about her parents, but she was not the only child. Kate Warne is an inspiration to all women for being one of the very first private eye detectives. Allan, director of the agency, greatly appreciated Kate, he said “In my service you will serve your country better than on the field. I have several female operatives. If you agree to come aboard you will go in training with the head of my female detectives, Kate Warne. She has never let me down.” One Day Kate Warne was reading an ad for detectives, and she saw an opportunity to be apart of Allan Pinkerton’s Agency. She decides to go up for the job. Kate Warne stomps into the office, demanding to see Allan Pinkerton, although when he first met her, he was surprised that she was not there to become a clerical worker. Allan Pinkerton said “It is not custom to employ women detectives.” Kate Warne, trying to prove a point says, women would be “Most useful in worming out secrets in many places which would be impossible for a male detective.” Kate Warne is trying to demonstrate that women can do anything a man can do. Her argument affected Allan Pinkerton so much that the first female detective on August 23,1856 was Kate Warne in Pinkerton’s Detective Agency and in the United States, overruling his brothers desires Robert Pinkerton. Kate Warne had an affair with Allan Pinkerton, but he had kids and a wife. Allan Pinkerton and Kate Warne became married and travelled. This became a problem, because his brother asked about the prices that Kate was turning in. Kate Warne’s first assignment was in 1858 investigating the Adams Express Company for a robbing. Mr. Maroney was an expressman in Montgomery, Alabama who had stolen $50,000 from the Adam’s Express Company. Kate talked to the wife of the criminal for more information on the case. With the help of Kate, she returned $39,515 to its rightful place, and Maroney spent 10 years on prison. The biggest case Kate Warne is known for is the shooting of the Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president. 1861, Samuel Felton, president of the Baltimore Railroad recruited Pinkerton. He Needed Allan Pinkerton to investigate the breakaway in Maryland, and Felton worried ’bout threats of damage to the railroads in Maryland.’Felton’s thoughts made Allan place agents at different locations to inspect the division in Maryland. After gathering enough details, they are now aware where the assassination will happen in Maryland (aware the the activity also included assassination plot).Warne later on became part of the investigation team, she was sent to Baltimore on February 3,1861, which told a story to assassinate Abraham Lincoln, while changing trains in Baltimore on his way to D.C for his oath in the office. Mrs. Cherry and M. Barley gave Kate a fake identity as a flirting southern belle with a thick southern accent and they planted her in Barnum Hotel to uncover more information. Warne found out where and when Lincoln’s assassination would be and she came up with the plan to meet Lincoln at the small hallway of Calvert Street Station in Baltimore. She noticed that there was supposed to be a fight in the location that Lincoln was to be, hoping that the cops would come and see what the ruckus is about, meaning that would leave Lincoln in the middle of the scene at the time.
