This interactive exhibit presents the little-known Culper Spy Ring that was active during the American Revolution from 1778 to 1781. George Washington suffered heavy losses at the beginning of the war for independence from the British. He soon realized that credible information about British troop movements was vital in preparing a successful campaign. After the capture of Nathan Hale, Washington asked Major Benjamin Tallmadge, his Chief of Intelligence, to organize a spy ring, now known as the Culper Spy Ring.
SPIES! tells their exciting story through the use of:
- Interactive Software with fun-filled educational games.
- Hands on activities that include writing with quill pens and invisible ink.
- Decoding Spy Letters using Tallmadge’s Spy Code.
