Cato, NY

Cato may refer to:

Cato (spy)

Cato was an African-American slave who served as an American Black Patriot spy and courier gathering Intelligence with his owner, Hercules Mulligan, who was a "sub-agent of the Culper Ring" in New York City. Mulligan's activities began before the Ring was formed and he operated both independently and in connection with the Ring. Cato was a vital associate in Mulligan's activities, often acting as a courier, in part through British-held territory. Historian Paul R. Misencik has written that Cato was a "faithful accomplice" of Mulligan.

An article in the Daughters of the American Revolution Magazine in 1985 stated: "Every estimate of the number of minorities who participated in the American Revolution has been deceptively low...." Cato is among those whose contributions have been mostly overlooked. Other than his intelligence activities with Mulligan, no definite information about him or his life is available.
