James Armistead served the Patriot army and was so committed that risked his life over and over. Yet, when it was all over, James was not granted his freedom. He went back to work for his owner/master, but he also took the name of his mentor and inspiration, Lafayette. From that time, he was known as James Armistead Lafayette. Eventually, the Marquis de Lafayette wrote a testimonial for James (pictured, right), and finally freedom was granted to this unsung hero of the Revolution.
During those years of spying, he was the invisible man. A black servant would never be suspected of being a spy for the Patriots. The invisible man: that's one way of saying he would go without anyone noticing his covert activity. He probably wished he really was invisible.
