Transcript of James Armistead

James Armistead By: Connor Bickel Why He was Famous
James Armistead became a spy for the French in the French and Indian war. He signed up For the British as a slave. When everyone was asleep at the British camp he would secretly meet with someone with the French. The man would then head on back to the camp to tell the general. After two months James was not able to communicate with the French. When he returned back to camp he had news that the British wanted James to spy on the French. He started to act like a spy and spyed on the French. He was really spying for the French. Quotes

“I have decided that I’m not going to hide, become invisible, or try and keep this a secret. That part of my transition is over. I have been a relatively high profile artist and game developer my entire career and I don’t see that changing because I am now acknowledging that I am”
“I am Invisible. I am a Black man. Most white folk don’t look at me. They don’t care about me, they don’t fear me. Do you have any use for an invisible man?”

I think spies were a good thing because if there were no spies then we could of not known of British attacks. Thanks to spies we could know what the British were planning like recruiting more troops, shipping weapons to there base or attacking the French. Spys were CRUTIAL to the wars. The problem was that if you were being spyed on, the other forces could plan an attack. Do you think spies were a good thing or a bad thing? Background Music Sources Liberty Kids TV. (2009).
