The British thought nothing of executing any spies they came across in or out of uniform.

Necessary risks

The future of the United Colonies and their freedom depended on gathering intelligence and passing it to Washington.

One such spy

There was a very courageous intelligence agent wo was a school teacher in New York.

Brave man caught

Death penalty

Hung by the neck until dead.

This young man was one of Washingtons favorites. He loved talking to him.

The tragic news
