When General George Washington beat a hasty retreat from New York City in August 1776, many thought the American Revolution might soon be over. Instead, Washington rallied -- thanks in large part to a little-known, top-secret group called the Culper Spy Ring. Washington realized that he couldn't beat the British with military might, so he recruited a sophisticated and deeply secretive intelligence network to infiltrate New York. So carefully guarded were the members' identities that one spy's name was not uncovered until the twentieth century, and one remains unknown today. But by now, historians have discovered enough information about the ring's activities to piece together evidence that these six individuals turned the tide of the war. These secret six are Robert Townsend, Austin Roe, Caleb Brewster, Abraham Woodhull, James Rivington, and a woman known only by her assigned number, Agent 355. Here, these spies finally take their place among the pantheon of heroes of the American Revolution.
In 1778, George Washington unleashed an unlikely ring of spies in New York to discover British battle plans.

" ... I inherited Revolutionary War letters which various citizens had written. The main character is the obscure Rev. Andrew Eliot of Fairfield Connecticut which I hypothesize may have been an American Secret Agent facilitated in these endeavors by Aaron Burr's first cousin, Thaddeus Burr. Benjamin Tallmadge, Robert Townsend, Austin Roe and Caleb Brewster were known to have participated in the Culper Spy Ring informing General George Washington of the British troops whereabouts and supplies. Until now other members have not been identified ... read for yourself the evidence presented here with scanned letters and artifacts and the genealogy that illustrates how I am in possession of these fascinating historical records"--Preface.
"Now with a new afterword: How the captivity of American sailors planted the seeds of America's antislavery movements."
George Washington was America’s first spymaster, and his skill as a spymaster won the war for independence. George Washington’s Secret Spy War is the untold story of how George Washington took a disorderly, ill-equipped rabble and defeated the best trained and best equipped army of its day in the Revolutionary War. Author John A. Nagy has become the nation’s leading expert on the subject, discovering hundreds of spies who went behind enemy lines to gather intelligence during the American Revolution, many of whom are completely unknown to most historians. Using George Washington’s diary as the primary source, Nagy tells the story of Washington’s experiences during the French and Indian War and his first steps in the field of espionage. Despite what many believe, Washington did not come to the American Revolution completely unskilled in this area of warfare. Espionage was a skill he honed during the French and Indian war and upon which he heavily depended during the Revolutionary War. He used espionage to level the playing field and then exploited it on to final victory. Filled with thrilling and never-before-told stories from the battlefield and behind enemy lines, this is the story of how Washington out-spied the British. For the first time, readers will discover how espionage played a major part in the American Revolution and why Washington was a master at orchestrating it.
