Nathan Hale's Only Regret

| No TrackBacks

Nathan Hale.gifOn September 22, 1776, Revolutionary War patriot Nathan Hale was hanged by the British as an American spy. He was just 21 years old. This teacher turned soldier volunteered when General George Washington asked for a man to pass through British lines to obtain information on the Red Coats' position. Hale was captured and sentenced to die. Tradition has it that his stirring final words were "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country." These words and his conduct have made him one of America's most memorable heroes. To learn more about him, check out Nathan Hale: The Life and Death of America's First Spy.
