Member Edition

Realizing that he couldn’t beat the British with military might after his retreat from New York in August 1776, General George Washington recruited a top-secret group to infiltrate the city. The identities of the so-called Culper Spy Ring were so carefully guarded that one spy’s name was not uncovered until the twentieth century, and one remains unknown today.

From ringleader Robert Townsend (whose identity was unknown even to Washington) to Caleb Brewster, the longshoreman who ferried messages between Connecticut and New York, these intrepid spies helped turn the tide of the war. In George Washington’s Secret Six, Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger give them their their proper due as true heroes of the American Revolution.
