John Honeyman, Washington's Spy, Unsung Hero or Urban Legend?
The story of John Honeyman, the Griggstown, New Jersey butcher and cattle dealer who, according to legend, became a spy for General George Washington in the months leading up to the game-changing victory in the First Battle of Trenton, has intrigued and befuddled historians for more than one hundred years. Tim Stollery's presentation will lay out the genesis of the story, explore the findings on each side of the Honeyman mystery, and ultimately invite attendees to join in the search for more primary evidence that can support or debunk the legend of Washington's spy at Trenton.
John Honeyman, Washingtons' Spy lecture will be held on December 31, at 1 PM. For more information call 609-396-1776 or visit www.barracks.org. This free event is hosted by the Old Barracks Museum and is part of Patriots Week, a week-long celebration of Trenton's revolutionary history.
