DescriptionEdit

Season 2Edit

"As a slave, Abigail was sold at 13 by her father/master to work in the household of Anna Strong's father. The two women grew up together and Abigail became not just Anna’s housemaid, but her confidante. After being sent by Major Hewlett to work as a servant for John André, Abigail became a trusted member of his household, valued for her loyalty, discretion and even the sound advice she gives to Peggy Shippen. Unbeknownst to André, she is actually working as a spy, sending intelligence back to Anna hidden in gifts for her son, Cicero, in exchange for Anna’s continued care for her son. Though Abigail is sympathetic to the patriot cause, her ultimate loyalty is to Cicero and she will do whatever she thinks is best for her son’s future."

Season 3Edit

"As a slave, Abigail grew up in the household of Anna Strong's father and became not just Anna's housemaid, but her confidante. After being sent by Major Hewlett to work as a servant for John André, Abigail became a trusted member of his household, but was actually sending intelligence back to Anna hidden in gifts for her son, Cicero. As the second season came to a close, however, Abigail's reunion with Cicero caused her to reconsider spying for the Patriot cause. In Season Three, Abigail finds herself at the opposite extreme, carrying secret messages between John André and Peggy Shippen in Philadelphia. Compelled to lie to each of them, Abigail begins to wonder if she is also lying to herself."

Season 4Edit

"A slave who grew up in the household of Anna Strong's father, Abigail is not just Anna's former housemaid, but her confidante. Sent by Major Hewlett to work as a servant for John André, Abigail became a trusted member of his household, but was actually sending intelligence back to Anna, hidden in gifts for her son, Cicero. As the second season came to a close, however, Abigail's reunion with Cicero caused her to reconsider spying for the Patriot cause. Abigail found herself at the opposite extreme in Season 3, carrying secret messages between John André and Peggy Shippen in Philadelphia. Compelled to lie to each of them, Abigail grew uncomfortable with her role in the Ring, especially as she was the one who passed the secret that Benedict Arnold had turned traitor, contributing to John André's death. Abigail realizes that living in fear of patriot slave-catchers is not for her or Cicero. She is prepared to do anything to protect her son, especially when a blast from the past comes knocking at her door..."
