As the real-life model for the main character in James Fenimore Cooper's 'The Spy,' Enoch Crosby played a crucial but hidden role in the American Revolution. He was a Revolutionary War spy and risked his life on many occasions to gather and deliver intelligence to George Washington's army. Crosby often posed as a Loyalist and was even captured more than once by American troops. He was very nearly executed as a traitor by his own countrymen but he escaped. After the war, this modest man went about his business until H.L. Barnum wrote his story in 1828. This exciting tale is from the mouth of Crosby himself, detailing the harrowing life of a revolutionary spy. Every memoir of the American Revolution provides us with another view of the movement that changed the world forever.
