Book - 1783
Rate this:
John André was a British Army officer in charge of British secret intelligence during the American Revolutionary War. He recruited Benedict Arnold’s loyalist wife Peggy Shippen, and together they persuaded Arnold himself to surrender West Point and align himself with the British. A botched escape attempt behind Patriot lines led to André’s capture by New York militiamen, who turned him over to the Continental Army. A military tribunal presided over by Major General Nathanael Greene found André guilty of being a spy and hanged him.
