Introduction

 

 

What lead up to the Culper Spy Ring

Many horrible events lead up to the culper spy ring. Benjamin Tallmadge was present at many  unfair things,  but when the british decided to turn on the citizens of the new country he decided it was time to take action. The stamp act the boston massacre and many other events lead up to the action of the Culper spy ring. The members of the culper spy ring saw how the british was treating the citizens of the new country, like taxing the citizens or forcing the community to house soldiers. If you really think about the community of Great Britain was doing more than King George the third. All that he was doing was enforcing rules that no one liked. The Culper Spy Ring was created to help George Washington and the other patriots fight against the British.   

 

     The Culper spy ring was created to help the patriots break free from Britain and become free. The headquarters were located in Setucket and where new york city is today. The culper spy ring was created in 1778 and unfortunately died down in 1783 because the war was over, many question about why they broke up. In all of the five years the spy ring was together they were never discovered. The Culper Spy Ring is famous for uncovering the secret plans to ambush Rhode Island the culper spy ring also figured out that Benedict arnold  was a turncoat.

 

What was the Culper Spy Ring

    

 

How did the information get to George Washington 

Many patriots were part of the Culper spy ring but one of the most famous was Robert Townsend who owned a coffee shop and that was the first step in getting the message to George Washington. Next,  Austin Roe would ride his horse to Abraham Woodhull’s farm who will find out where Caleb is with his whaleboat by looking at what Anna Strong has hung on her clothesline. Lastly, Caleb brings the message to George Washington who uses the information to know what the british is planning or how to improve.  

 

          The Culper Spy Ring risked a lot. They could have been found out. If they were found out the British troops would have threatened to tar and feather them or kill them. Let’s say that a member of the Culper Spy ring found  plans to a big attack and was trying to sneak back to the borders then the british found them. What do you think they would do? Something really bad!! This scenario is a lot like the one Benedict Arnold got himself into. Some say that he reached the border of the British before any patriot could catch him.

Dear Thomas Paine,

I am outraged that somehow the Patriots found out about the British Abush. I am sure that the British is going to catch the scoundrels who have betrayed the British and our fighting for George Washington. I can’t believe that George Washington once helped us in the French and Indian war. I hope that these scoundrels would betray the winning side!! Hope everything is good with you I want you.

Sincerely yours,

Flora White

Everything is fine here except that the british are starting to QUATER!! Can you believe it? How could they be so so so………...Rude,Impolite and disrespectful!!

Yours Truly,

Thomas Paine
