This interactive exhibit presents the little know Culper Spy Ring, centered in Setauket, that was active during the American Revolution from 1778 to 1783.  
George Washington suffered heavy losses at the beginning of the war for independence from the British. He soon realized that credible information about British troop movements was vital in preparing a successful campaign.  

After the capture and execution of his spy, Nathan Hale, Washington asked Benjamin Tallmadge, his Chief of Intelligence, to organize a spy ring, now known as the Culper Spy Ring.
