The story of John Honeyman, the Griggstown, New Jersey butcher and cattle
dealer who, according to legend, became a spy for General George Washington
in the months leading up to the game-changing victory in the First Battle
of Trenton, has intrigued and befuddled historians for more than one
hundred years. This presentation will lay out the genesis of the story,
explore the findings on each side of the Honeyman mystery, and ultimately
invite attendees to join in the search for more primary evidence that can
support or debunk the legend of Washington’s spy at Trenton. Free.
