What you'll learn in this historical class:

​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. As we make our way between The Battery and Wall Street, we'll retrace their steps. Along the way, we'll find out who first peddled fake news, meet the tailor who saved George Washington's life not once but twice, and discover what Eagles, Turtles, and Vultures have to do with turncoats and saboteurs.

This tour meets in front of the Alexander Hamilton Customs House (The National Museum of the American Indian) at 1 Bowling Green.
