You are a captain in the Continental Army. You are in the Battle of New York in Long Island. You volunteer to disguise himself and go behind enemy lines so that you can report on where the British troops are moving.
You are called America’s first spy. You are a Yale graduate and serve under General Washington. In September 16, 1776, you pose as a teacher and gather information on the British about their camps and forts.
You head into a tavern and take a seat. A friendly face approaches and sits next to you. He orders a drink and leans in close to let you know that he is a Patriot spy too! Do you believe him?
