Hailing from one of the richest and most distinguished Tory families in the capital of Philadelphia, Peggy is known as "the most beautiful woman in America."
A clever woman with a mind of her own, Peggy disobeyed her father's wishes when she fell in love with Major John André. Instead of eloping at the end of Season 2, André and Peggy decided she should stay in Philadelphia to turn Benedict Arnold from the Patriot cause. Peggy steered Arnold toward betraying Washington and the Americans, though with disastrous results—Arnold was run out of Philadelphia and John André was hanged.
At the beginning of Season 4, Peggy has crossed lines and joined her husband in New York. But she is embittered by losing André and being known as the wife of a traitor. She plots her revenge against all those who cause her pain.
