In 1850 Allan Pinkerton founded the Pinkerton National Detective Agency. This company, which is normally simply called Pinkerton’s, is a private U.S. security guard and detective agency. Pinkerton became famous in the mid-1800s for, as he claimed, foiling a plot to assassinate Abraham Lincoln who was at the time president-elect.
Because of his abilities, Lincoln later hired these agents as his personal security during the Civil War. The service went on to perform many services for both private guarding to contract military work. At one time the agency had more agents than there were members of the military.
Today the company is owned by a division of the Swedish security company Securitas AB.
