The American Revolution Letter
Common thinking during the American Revolution conveyed that women were not smart enough to understand the issues relating to war. As a result, many women could easily overhear classified information by listening to the conversations of the men surrounding them.
Ann Bates took the pseudonym "Mrs. Barnes," posed as a peddler, and sold her goods to Americans while secretly reporting information back to the British. She even managed to gain access to George Washington's camp, which may be considered one of her biggest accomplishments.
