Invisible Ink: Spycraft of the American Revolution
John Nagy, founding member of the American Revolution Round Table of Philadelphia, presents a history of espionage during the Revolutionary War. Mr. Nagy explores the spy efforts used by the British and the Continental Army that ranged from hidden compartments in hollowed bullets to dictionary codes and musical notation. The author recounts that American commander-in-chief George Washington was very interested in spycraft and counter-intelligence and maintained a large network of spies. John Nagy discussed his book at the Fraunces Tavern Museum in New York City. close
