Episode 14: 973.3 – The Culper Ring and George Washington’s Spies

In this episode, Hailee is bewitched with the Culper Ring, George Washington’s secret spy ring credited with turning the course of the war and enabling an American victory. The Culper Spy Ring operated successfully in and around New York City for five years and the informants were never discovered. Even George Washington himself was unaware of their identities. Along with spies like Hercules Mulligan and James Armistead, the Culper Ring was responsible for preventing the plan of one of history’s most notorious traitors and saving George Washington’s life more than once. And yes, there will be Hamilton quotes.
