Greenville Chautauqua: James Armistead Lafayette and Stephen Seals
Revolutionary War Double Agent, James Armistead Lafayette with Colonial Williamsburg’s Stephen Seals (Virtual interactive show)
Love a good spy story? How about an American slave who volunteers to spy for the Continental Army, does such a credible job of it that he gets recruited to be a double agent for the British, gaining the confidence of both General Cornwallis and Benedict Arnold? It’s an exciting tale 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 . . . True story. . . And you get to hear it told live by Colonial Williamsburg’s Stephen Seals.
