It was Washington’s experience and knowledge of the countryside that was so important. From the time he was 16, he had studied and worked as a land surveyor. He was an expert at making and reading maps. He spent weeks living in the wild while he surveyed the country, and he knew how to defend himself. In addition, he had a talent for understanding people and convincing them to do what he wanted. That was an excellent skill set for a spy. At 6 feet 3 inches tall, he towered over the other men of his day.

It was started in 1776 by Staten Island shipyard owner Joshua Mersereau. Also, the Clark Spy Ring operated behind enemy lines in Philadelphia during 1777. It was because of the success of these two rings that Washington started the Culper Spy Ring.
