Pictured: George Washington display at the museum. The plaque reads, ” The necessity of procuring good intelligence is apparent and need not be further urged — all that remains for me to add is, that you keep the whole matter as secret as possible. For upon secrecy, success depends in most enterprises of the kind, and for want of it, they are generally defeated, however well planned and promising a favorable issue.”

I found this display particularly interesting because I have been watching the TV series, “Turn.” It is about America’s first spy ring during the American Revolution.
