Shadow Patriots: A Novel of the Revolution Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Shadow Patriots: A Novel of the Revolution

Shadow Patriots tells of the Culper Ring, a group of George Washington's spies operating out of Manhattan and Long Island. The city of New York itself can hold its own among the American Revolution's cast of pungent characters. The story includes familiar names -- Washington, Hamilton, Benedict Arnold -- and one unfamiliar number, the mysterious 355. 355 was the Culpers' code for "lady," and after 225 years she remains a nameless heroine who, many historians believe, died for her country.
