You are a black slave. You ask your master’s permission to serve the Continental Army and get permission to serve the famous Frenchman, the Marquis de Lafayette.
You sneak messages across enemy lines. In summer of 1781, you sneak into the British camp of Cornwallis by posing as a runaway slave. You are so convincing as a loyalist to Britain that Cornwallis asks you to be a spy for the British! Do you accept?
