In 1776, Nathan Hale was hanged from the gallows for allegedly spying on the British. History writes that in his last dying speech, he professed the words, “I only regret that I have one life to lose for my country.” Author M. Williams Phelps focused on this and other myths about Nathan Hale. He is the author of Nathan Hale: The Life and Death of America’s First Spy.

“Hale, His Life & Legacy: Separating Fact From Fiction” was part of the Nathan Hale Symposium held by Connecticut Landmarks to explore new research into the life and times of Nathan Hale. The event was held on Saturday, August 7, 2010, in the First Congregational Church of Coventry. close
