"To Catch a Spy"

— The Morristown Green —

The Alexander Carmichael House located on the corner of South Street and the Green at what is now 42 Park Place, was occupied by General Nathaniel Greene. Colonel Alexander Hamilton met there with a suspected spy. He had prepared an exaggerated Table of Strength of the Army to fool the British. Excusing himself for an errand, he left the document in the office. When he came back the Table of Strength was gone, as was the man, now confirmed as being a double agent.
