Summary "Few Americans know much more about Nathan Hale than his famous last words: 'I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.' But who was the real Nathan Hale? In this well-researched biography, M. Williams Phelps separates historical fact from long-standing myth to reveal the life of Nathan Hale, a young man who deserves to be remembered as an original American patriot."--Book jacket.
