Episode 15 - Bonus Episode
Hercules Mulligan, Tailor & Patriot Spy
Welcome Patriots! In this Bonus Episode, I share the amazing life of a successful tailor in New York who became a spy for George Washington. Most people had not heard his name until the Broadway Musical "Hamilton" came out, but it's time he gets recognized for what he did. Not only did he help win the war, he literally saved George Washington from capture (or death) not once or twice, but three times!
Sit back, relax, and enjoy our discussion.
