Revolutionary War Double Agent, James Armistead Lafayette, performed by Colonial Williamsburg’s Stephen Seals
Everybody loves a good spy story. How about American slave James Armistead Lafayette that volunteers to spy for the Continental Army, and does such a credible job of it, he gets recruited to be a double agent for the British gaining the confidence of both General Charles Cornwallis and traitor, Benedict Arnold?
It’s an exciting story of a bogus “runaway slave” living a dangerous life behind enemy lines ferreting out information and spreading “mis-information” that allows the American forces to triumph at the Battle of Yorktown.
Not fiction . . . A true story. . . And you get to hear it told live by Colonial Williamsburg’s Stephen Seals.
