Please post discussion for Ch 3 here.

Harold Titus (haroldtitus) | 25 comments Definitely a better chapter than Ch. 2. The subject matter -- Arnold's desertion, Major Andre's execution, and Sergeant Champe's mission -- make it so. I'd never heard of Champe. Somebody writing a historical novel would have a worthy subject to feature. I googled his name to find out more information about Champe. I wonder if Richard Ketchum will provide it later in this book.

The story of how Peggy Shippen Arnold fooled the commanders of the Patriots is one of the most intriguing of the entire revolution. And to think that her acting job wasn't discovered until about 150 years after the fact!
