In wartime, it helps to know the enemy’s plans.
A spy’s job is to find out enemy secrets. Women made good spies during the Revolution because no one thought they could be clever enough or brave enough to do the job. Several women became saboteurs (sa-buh-TERS). Saboteurs commit acts of sabotage, meaning that they destroy things that the enemy could use.
