Time to celebrate the 4th of SPY!

By the summer of 1776 George Washington had suffered two disastrous defeats. New York was in the hands of the British and Long Island was controlled by Loyalists. Washington was in desperate need of good intelligence and created his Culper Spy Ring to operate on Long Island. Join Elizabeth Kahn Kaplan, curator of the Three Village Historical Society exhibit, Spies! How A Group of Long Island Patriots Helped General Washington Win the Revolution, as she reveals how the five "Culpers" gathered information about British military activity on Long Island and in Manhattan and sent it to General Washington despite constant danger. You will be fascinated by the story and accomplishments of Robert Townsend, Abraham Woodhull, Austin Roe, Caleb Brewster, and Anna Smith Strong.
