        Sandwiched In

        SANDWICHED IN: George Washington’s Long Island Spy Ring. George Washington was in need of good intelligence after he evacuated the Continental Army from New York City in September 1776. His disastrous loss at the Battle of Long Island in Brooklyn, and subsequent defeats north of the city, forced him to retreat with his soldiers to New Jersey and eventually to Pennsylvania. The Culper Spy Ring was created on Long Island in 1778 by then-Dragoon Major Benjamin Tallmadge of Setauket, under Washington’s leadership. Join Elizabeth Kahn Kaplan for an illustrated discussion of this compelling episode in Long Island’s history. Ms. Kaplan was the Director of Education with the Three Village Historical Society in Setauket. Made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities’ Speakers in the Humanities program. 12:10 p.m.
