Biography

Ann Bates was a schoolteacher in Philidelphia. But that wasn't her only job. She was also a british spy. Her husband was a british artillery repairman so she learned how to identify weapons easily. She easily got access to American camps by posing as a pedler named Mrs. Barnes. Another advantage to get ahead in her career was that soldiers would discuss their plans in front of women. So she could easily discover plans.
