Anna Strong A Spy During the American Revolution by Sarah Glenn Marsh

George Washington needed to know what the British were doing, so he created a spy ring.  In that era it was a good idea to use a woman as a spy.  No one would suspect her...

Abrams allowed to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

In time, Anna learned to signal messages by the laundry she hung out to dry.  Her black petticoat meant there was a message to go.

Her husband is arrested and she learns to bribe the guards so she can visit and feed him.

I admire her for her strength and her ability to get the right messages.  It was her message to Washington that helped him defeat the British.

You could send your own messages using the secret code in the back of the book!
