Nathan Hale – 9/22/1776

Nathan Hale died bravely and defiantly for American liberty, rather than on his knees under subjugation of a King who had "erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their Substance."

Read "I Only Regret that I have but one life to lose for my Country," said Nathan Hale.  

"Exactly 237 years ago, on September  22, 1776, American patriotNathan Hale was hanged for spying on  British troops. As he was led to the gallows, Nathan Hale’s famous last words reportedly were:

I  only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”

"Nathan Hale allegedly  spoke these words to British Captain John Montresor, Chief Engineer of His  Majesty’s Forces in North America and aide-de-camp to British General William  Howe, while the preparations for his hanging were underway."
