Resumo:

When General George Washington beat a hasty retreat from New York City in August 1776, many thought the American Revolution might soon be over. Instead, Washington rallied -- thanks in large part to a little-known, top-secret group called the Culper Spy Ring. Washington realized that he couldn't beat the British with military might, so he recruited a sophisticated and deeply secretive intelligence network to infiltrate New York. So carefully guarded were the members' identities that one spy's name was not uncovered until the twentieth century, and one remains unknown today. But by now, historians have discovered enough information about the ring's activities to piece together evidence that these six individuals turned the tide of the war. These secret six are Robert Townsend, Austin Roe, Caleb Brewster, Abraham Woodhull, James Rivington, and a woman known only by her assigned number, Agent 355. Here, these spies finally take their place among the pantheon of heroes of the American Revolution.
