About the event

When asked if he had cut down the cherry tree a young George Washington  told his father “I cannot tell a lie.” However, as an adult, America’s  original spymaster was a master of deception and, yes, lies. Spies,  Lies, and Unlikely Allies” is the story of spying during the American  Revolution. Washington’s spying activities levelled the playing field  against the British army, the most powerful in the world. As noted by  British Intelligence officer George Beckwith, “Washington did not really  outfight the British, he simply outspied us.”
