Red, White, & Spy: Secrets of the American Revolution

“The Americans didn’t outfight us…they out spied us!” These famous words uttered by a British commander reveal the important role of spies during the American Revolution.

Reporting to General George Washington, students will travel back in time to the summer of 1781.  The mission: craft a deception operation to divert the planned British attack on the incoming French fleet.  Their methods: covert communication, invisible ink, and codes and ciphers.  Integrating primary documents into a live action mission, students will assist General Washington while American success in the War hangs in the balance!
