The Aftermath of the Plot
Indian pudding was served with sauce and beef, potato, turnips and other vegetables.
Hard cider and Rum was the beverage of choice
The plot went under pay of Loyalist New York mayor David Mathews (he was arrested by Patriots) but he did escape.
Hickey tried to convince one of William Leary's employees to join the plot - resulting in the employee to tell Patriot troops of the planned assassination.
7 of Hickey's accomplices gave evidence against him.
Soon after, Hickey was sentenced to death for the attempted assassination of George Washington and was hung on June 28th, 1776 in New York City.
George Washington said after the hanging, "I am hopeful this example will produce many salutary consequences and deter others from entering into like traitorous practices."

Pumpkin cookies that wives and their daughters would cook for dessert.
Bean porridge is a type of soup containing herbs and beans usually eaten for breakfast.
Calvarymen needed horses to easily get across the battlefield and could carry more weight, and cover more ground on horseback.
Horses were the major mode of transportation.
Many Virginia men, such as George Washington enjoyed fox hunting, which is hunting foxes on horseback where you must jump over obstacles.
Horses were not as common as some may think.
Owners had to import their horses, as they were not native to that part of the world
The common type of horse at this time was a light draft style, that could plow, pull a carriage, and be ridden
Grain and hay at this time was very expensive to grow and store
Works Cited
Messengers were also a necessity, and horses were needed
To deliver mail or news, a messenger, on horseback, would be hired to go out to bring it
Often the messengers had important mail so they'd have to be really careful about where they camped out
