Abstract: In the opening years of the American Revolution a scandal arose involving American procurement officer Silas Deane. His problems brought to light diplomatic stumbles resulting from American inexperience and were a catalyst for broad changes in American foreign policy, yet little has been written about his life. While the body of work on the subject is limited, combining the scholarship on revolutionary diplomacy with primary sources from the period brings to light the significance of the scandal. This research leads to the conclusion that as a direct result of the accusations against Deane, American foreign affairs were altered and the French were able to capitalize on American weaknesses. While much has been written about the revolutionary era, the Deane-Lee scandal has often been overlooked, leaving a major episode in the development of American government hitherto unexplored.
