Assassin's Creed III

Benjamin Tallmadge, Jr. (1754 – 1835) was a member of the United States House of Representatives during the American Revolutionary War. He also organized the spy circle, the Culper Ring, under the orders of General George Washington in the summer of 1778, during the British occupation of New York at the height of the American Revolutionary War.

Despite his father, Benjamin Tallmadge, Sr., being an Assassin, Tallmadge chose not to join the Brotherhood, saying that he hoped to have a family someday and that living in two worlds was not ideal. However, he did help the Order as much as he could.[1]

When he discovered that the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton had uncovered a plot to kill George Washington, he helped him gather evidence by leading him to a group belonging to a counterfeiting ring, orchestrated and led by Thomas Hickey, the latter of which were printing false money. Fortunately, as they were passing by a market, a seller yelled at one man for using counterfeit money, whom Connor chose to tail.[1]

A few days later, Tallmadge was standing beside Israel Putnam as the General ordered the Patriots to stand down after Connor had stopped Hickey from killing Washington. However, Connor chose to depart for Philadelphia, stating that Hickey did not act alone.
