Season four picks up the story of Woodhull and his spy compatriots as they reach a significant turning point in the war, with both the British and the Americans reeling from monumental losses and betrayals.  With only 10 episodes to go, the action accelerates towards Yorktown, the pivotal 1783 battle in Virginia that tipped the balance and ultimately decided the war.
