250 years later and still no-one knows who she was. Now THAT's how you spy.

I'd imagine it was far easier to be an unknown spy 250 years ago, and the passing of time is only likely to make it more difficult to establish her identity, bit like Jack the Ripper.

Presumably the British knew who she was if she was imprisoned, right?

That's just a rumor though, as the article points out, there are major problems with the imprisonment story

“Turn”, the Netflix series is actually pretty good and covers the spy rings of the Revolution.

AMC series

May I ask what’s AMC series?

"Turn: Washington's Spies", as mentioned by your GP: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turn:_Washington%27s_Spies

AMC is the "American Movie Classics" cable TV channel: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMC_(TV_channel)
