Some of the slaves met with George Washington to form America’s first spy ring which led to America’s first official President of the young nation whom was John Hanson an African American who hailed from Maryland. Those African American slaves later formed a secret alliance and risked their lives to give vital military information to General Washington which became the critical and decisive blow to win a world war and America’s independence to become a young nation against King George.
