Discover the story of John Honeyman, a Griggstown, NJ businessman who, according to legend, became a spy for General George Washington. Presented by Emmy award winning filmmaker Tim Stollery.

The legend of the Griggstown spy who helped General 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 discuss 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 evidence to support or debunk the legend of Washington’s spy at Trenton.
