Sympathetic Spies: George Washington’s Eyes and Ears in Lower Manhattan

The British Revolutionary War Spymaster Major George Beckwith claimed that, “Washington didn’t really outfight the British, he simply out-spied us.” The General’s master spies operated out of Lower Manhattan and this walking tour will make its way between the Battery and Wall Street, retracing their steps.

Join Archive on Parade founder Lucie Levine on this guided walking tour to discover who first peddled fake news, meet the tailor who saved George Washington’s life not once but twice, and find out what Eagles, Turtles, and Vultures have to do with turncoats and saboteurs.
