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.
