It is good for us to remember that every American patriot and hero during the times leading up to and throughout the War for American Independence would have been considered a traitor to the government.
On September 10, 1776, George Washington asked for a volunteer to act as a spy. Nathan Hale stepped up to the challenge of an intelligence-gathering mission in New York City. Unfortunately, the British captured and executed him. He is probably best known for his last words before being hanged:
“I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.”Nathan Hale
He has long been considered an American hero. In 1985, Nathan Hale was officially designated the state hero of Connecticut.
