SETAUKET, LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK: SIMPLY REVOLUTIONARY

Inspired by my recent viewing of AMC’s “TURN,” about the Culper Spy Ring (for George Washington), I wanted to visit some of the remnants of that extraordinary time when the bravest of souls fought tirelessly for our ultimate freedom from British rule:

This is the gravesite of Abraham “Abe” Woodhull, a friend of Washington’s, and arguably the greatest spy in the Culper Ring. This is located on the grounds of the Setauket Presbyterian Church.
