Abstract for Mike’s Presentation 

“Revolutionary Spycraft”

America’s hard-fought independence was made possible, in part, with the help of a wide range of tools that come under the heading of “spycraft”. These tools, practiced by both the Colonists and the British, protected communications vital to both military and diplomatic missions. They disguised information needed to plan strategy, report the enemy’s capabilities, provide warnings, and protect sensitive diplomatic negotiations. Effective use of spycraft protected Colonists’ strategies, revealed the enemy’s operational intentions and strengths, and even unveiled American traitors. This presentation titled Revolutionary Spycraft will provide a brief overview of some of the spycraft used during the Revolutionary War.
