Spies in Time: George Washington Spied Here
10/14/2014, 7:00 PM
Moultonborough Public Library Program Room
Presented by Douglas Wheeler, PhD
General George Washington was not only our first President but was America's first spymaster and intelligence chief and his actions in this endeavor in the American Revolutionary War contrast with the usual popular image of Washington as a simple, straight forward soldier. Professor Wheeler's lecture will highlight the secret side of Washington's wartime leadership with special attention to the story of patriot-spy-martyr Nathan Hale, Yale Class of 1773 and the history of the talented Culper spy ring in New York and Long Island.
