James Armistead Lafayette, portrayed by Stephen Seals
Everybody loves a good spy story. How about an American slave that volunteers to spy for the Continental Army, does such a credible job of it, he gets recruited to be a double agent for the British gaining the confidence of both General Cornwallis and traitor, Benedict Arnold?
It’s an exciting story of a bogus “runaway slave” living a dangerous life behind enemy lines ferreting out information and spreading “mis-information” that allows the American forces to triumph at the Battle of Yorktown.
Not fiction . . . True story. . . And you get to hear it told by Colonial Williamsburg’s Stephen Seals.
