How did the Culper Spy Ring form and why was Long Island its birthplace?
This virtual program experience, live from the authentic Brewster House, promotes critical thinking, team work and dialogue. As a group, students will be challenged with converting inn keeper Rebecca Brewster to join the Culper Spy Ring. Like many colonists at the time, Rebecca has mixed feelings about whether to rebel against the Crown or to stay loyal. Can your students convince her? Putting their own skills to the test, students will undergo a full exploration of the Brewster House (c. 1665) in search of clues and secret messages!
