5/20/2024 - Spies in the American Revolution on June 22, 2024

On Saturday, June 22, 2024 from 2-3pm in the Kingsley Room, join us to learn more about spies in the American Revolution.

Join us for the return of Damien Cregeau for a lecture on espionage operations during the American Revolution in and around Connecticut, including Long Island Sound and New York. We will explore the stories of Captain Nathan Hale, as well as his friend, Major Benjamin Tallmadge as they worked to provide intelligence to General George Washington. Mr. Cregeau will provide an overview of Tallmadge's famous Culper spy ring that operated between New York and Connecticut via Long Island Sound. He will also describe a special invisible ink created by Sir James Jay and used by Washington and the Culper ring.

Damien Cregeau earned his B.A. in history from Hillsdale College and his M.A. in history from Colorado State. He is a nationally- recognized scholar of the American Revolution who has spoken throughout the northeast from Washington, D.C. to Boston and Vermont. His talk on the military leadership of Major General Alexander Hamilton is featured on C-SPAN.
