I'm so glad that dirty Red Coat isn't living with me.
My name is May Smith, ever since the Boston Tea Party I have been an American spy. I live with my husband, we do not have any children. My husband is a farmer, he is also a Minuteman.
We have to escape the Red Coats are coming!
When I am in town, or around loyalists I act as if I have the same beliefs as them. This allows me to find out information from loyalists and soldiers about the British.
Oh no! My poor husband! In must help him.
Crazy rednecks will not beat us!
Good to know...
After the British soldier that lived with my husband and I died at Lexington, I am now able to travel to some battles with my husband. I cook for the soldiers and aid to the wounded.
I heard the King is ready to stop the fighting and let the revolution continue.
In the spring of 1777, I was able find out that Red Coats were coming for the Continental Congress. Because of the information I gathered they were all able to successfully escape Philadelphia.
The victory at the Battle of Saratoga was wonderful for us. My husband successfully made it out of this battle alive. He was injured, but I was able to nurse him back to health. When he was not able to fight, I took his place.
I discovered from a British man that the King was ready to give up. I was very glad to find it was true after the signing of the Treaty of Paris. Although I helped this country gain independence I still am not "equal" to a man, but I know what I have done for them.
