Nathan Hale (1755-1776)Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Nathan Hale (1755-1776)

Description: Nathan Hale (June 6, 1755-September 22, 1776), U.S. soldier, patriot and spy for the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, is shown at right entering a British Army camp disguised as a Dutch schoolmaster, with plans to learn the secret operations of British troops. Identified either by a British officer or a Tory relative to British officials in British-occupied New York City, Hale was questioned by British General William Howe (Sir William Howe; August 10, 1729-July 12, 1814), appearing nervous. He was then searched and incriminating documents were found hidden in one of his boots. He was summarily hanged the following day. Before his execution, the 21-year-old Hale stated: "I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country." Hale is considered one of America's greatest heroes. At the 1893 dedication of the Nathan Hale Statue unveiled in New York City, his great-nephew and Amerian author, Edward Everett Hale (April 3, 1822-June 10, 1909), stated: "And because that boy said those words, and because he died, thousands of other young men have given their lives to his country."
