    Just finished a fascinating read, George Washington's Secret Six: The Spy Ring That Saved the American Revolution.

    This is a fascinating read on the Culper spy ring that fed information on British movements in and around New York City during the Revolutionary War. It could well be that this spy ring is largely responsible for the downfall of the British. This group of brave folk uncovered and reported the betrayal of the Continental forces by Benedict Arnold and thereby saved West Point from being handed over to the British. Had that happened Washington would, in all probability, have been forced to surrender.

    I recently read a novel about the Culper ring, "The Inner Circle" by Brad Meltzer. Fairly entertaining read, though the narrative was somewhat disjointed.
