Written in 1821, "The Spy" was intended to preserve both the memory and the meaning of the American Revolution. Inspired by accusations of venality leveled at the men who captured Major Andre (Benedict Arnold's co-conspirator who was executed for espionage in 1780), the novel centers on Harry Birch, a common man wrongly suspected by the Patriots of being a spy for the British.
