Spies of Revolutionary Rhode Island Explored in Upcoming Lecture at Linden Place Mansion

April 13, 2019
Spies of Revolutionary Rhode Island Explored in Upcoming Lecture at Linden Place Mansion
Rhode Island was a hotbedof espionage during the Revolutionary War. Many ordinary Rhode Islanders---some with Tory sympathies, and some Patriots--- became spies, in some cases risking their lives repeatedly to serve the cause they believed in. The British and Americans each employed spies to discover the secrets, plans and positions of their enemy. Continental navy lieutenant, John Trevett, dressed as an
ordinary sailor, grew out his beard and went from tavern to tavern in Newport
gathering intelligence. Metcalf Bowler became a traitor on the order of
Benedict Arnold, as he spied for the British while serving as a Patriot leader
in Providence. Disguised as a peddler, Ann Bates spied for the British during
the Rhode Island Campaign.

Learn about these fascinating stories and more on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 2pm, when Linden Place Mansion hosts Christian McBurney, author of Spies of Revolutionary Rhode Island, to speak in the historic ballroom at 500 Hope Street, Bristol.
