|Thanks amhistoryguy for the names of those CW spy books. The one I read about Revolutionary War era spying was a lot more interesting than I thought it would be so I will pick up one of the books you suggested. Since I will be attending the reenactment of Washington's Crossing of the Delaware on Christmas Day, I am re-reading David McCullough's "1776" to get my mind more set in that period of time. (I also just finished Philbrick's "Mayflower" so I'm really drifting back into history, but I live in New England so I find it fascinating, too). Anyway, in the New Year I will start back up with the War of 1812 and the Civil War to get ready for my spring and summer trips to MD, PA, VA and WV. By the way, as I am not related to anyone who came to America before the 1880's or 90's, I think it must be really great to have a great-grandfather, or someone, who took part in these historic events.
