Benjamin Franklin and Espionage

The last quarter of the 18th century was a turbulent time.Tales of espionage were common throughout the western world

The last quarter of the 18th century was a turbulent time – the American War of Independence and the French Revolution in particular exacerbated international tensions. Tales of espionage were common throughout the western world, and countless prominent figures were accused, at one time or another, of spying for other nations - including Franklin himself. Was there some truth behind any of these accusations…? The UK’s foremost Franklin expert and Benjamin Franklin House trustee, Lady Joan Reid, investigates!
