Storyboard Text

  • In this storyboard, Robert Townsend is writing about what the British are up to and where they are going to be to attack the Colonists. He is a merchant working apart of The Culper Ring, which is as secret spy group located in the British territory (New York).  
  • After Robert Townsend writes the information, he passes the information onto Austin Roe, a Setauket tavern owner. 
  • Austin Roe now walks through the city towards the woods to fulfill General Washington's wishes. He digs a hole in the woods and and inserts the information in a drop box in Setauek.
  • Abraham Woodhull then would come and retieve the information in the drop box in the ground and wait for the signal
  • Caleb Brewster then would come across Long Island Sound and retieve the message from Abraham Woodhull.
  • It was then Anna Smith Strong's duty to then send a signal to Abraham Woodhull that Caleb Brewster had arrived by using her laundry to send a message. It was crucial for her to let Abraham Woodhull know right away when Caleb Brewster had arrived because the British already had suspected and recognized him as a spy. She was a great part of making our country today and stood as a great role for the "Women of the American Revolution."
