BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

In her youth, Abraham Woodhull made friends with Caleb Brewster and Benjamin Tallmadge. The three would look out for each other and do many things together, including escorting Abe to secretly gain a kiss from Anna.

Anna and Abe went on to become lovers and were eventually engaged, until Abe broke off their engagement to become engaged to a woman named Mary, due to the death of his brother Thomas, who was engaged to her before his death.

Anna went on to marry Selah Strong, while Abe went on to wed Mary.

Culper Ring serviceEdit

In 1776, Anna helped signal Caleb for Abe to provide intelligence to the Continental Army. As well as Caleb and Abe, Ben was a part of the group that would later become the Culper Ring.

DescriptionEdit

Season 1Edit

"Anna is a smart, headstrong woman who has been friends with Abe, Ben and Caleb since they were children. Three years ago, Anna was engaged to marry Abe until the engagement was broken off by their respective fathers: her father a liberal Whig and Abe's a staunch Tory. As the British marched into town and drove her family out, Anna married Selah Strong, a known Whig, in the wake of her broken engagement. Since then, whispers have implicated Anna as a Patriot sympathizer. Despite being married to others, the connection between Abe and Anna remains strong and perilous circumstances of the war draw them closer together."

Season 2Edit

"A smart, headstrong woman, Anna has a complicated past with Abe, her former fiancé. Despite their history, they worked together to pass along crucial information to George Washington and the Continental Army, strengthening their own bond in the process. Believing her husband, Selah, was dead, Abe and Anna re-consummated their love but soon learn they were mistaken when Selah returns to town with the patriots during the Battle of Setauket. At the end of last season, Anna was faced with the choice of leaving with Selah and the other patriots during the retreat or giving up everything to stay behind. Anna jumped from her boat and swam back to Setauket, securing her status as a loyalist in the eyes of Major Hewlett and the other soldiers in town, and providing her with crucial access to continue her work with Abe and the Culper Ring."

Season 3Edit

"Anna, aka "The Signal of Setauket," is the heart of the four friends comprising the Culper Ring -- ready to do whatever is necessary for the cause. Anna even passed up the opportunity to leave Setauket with her husband at the end of Season One, electing to remain in danger, out of loyalty to her country and her love for Abe. In the second season, Anna's affair with Abe runs its course, but she continues to watch out for him as his co-conspirator in the ring. Anna encourages Major Hewlett's romantic interest in her to gain influence over the enemy, but is drawn in by his humanity and starts to care for Hewlett. Anna even resists Abe's plan to kill him in the Season Two finale. Season Three finds Anna's loyalties further divided as Hewlett becomes even more of a threat to Abe. Not wanting to see Abe hanged as a spy, but unwilling to see Hewlett sacrificed either, Anna embarks on a third way, a risky course of action that jeopardizes her own position."

Season 4Edit

"Anna, a.k.a. "The Signal of Setauket," is the heart of the four friends comprising the Culper Ring—ready to do whatever is necessary for the cause. Anna even passed up the opportunity to leave Setauket with her husband at the end of Season 1, electing to remain in danger out of loyalty to her country and her love for Abe. Anna's affair with Abe ran its course, but she continued to watch out for him as his co-conspirator in the Ring. Anna encouraged Major Hewlett's romantic interest to gain influence over the enemy, but started to care for him, even resisting Abe's plan to kill Hewlett. Not wanting to see Abe hanged as a spy, but unwilling to see Hewlett sacrificed either, Anna accepted Hewlett's proposal of marriage, humiliating him at the altar but saving his life. As we settle into Season 4, Anna fights for her place in the camp and her place in the Ring, as she becomes an advocate for the Camp Followers – the army of women who follow the army itself."
