Ben TallmadgePlayed by Seth Numrich
A childhood friend of Abe’s, Ben is a Continental Dragoon in Washington’s army. A fearless soldier and man of action, Ben is a natural born leader and the rock that keeps Abe and his friends together. Freshly appointed to a new intelligence detail, he’s the direct line from General Washington to the nascent spy ring he oversees. He is a Yale-educated cavalryman who is a passionate believer in the Patriot cause -- but even Ben’s unshakable resolve will be tested by the spy game.
