The Rosen Publishing Group, Inc, 15. dec. 2003 - 32 strani
Nathan Hale was an American patriot and soldier. Educated at Yale, he volunteered for service in the Continental Army at the outbreak of the war for independence. He rose to the rank of captain, whereupon he volunteered for a mission to reconnoiter the British position on Long Island. He was captured by the British, quickly tried, and hanged. Before his hanging, he uttered the infamous last words, "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country." This easy-to-read, fact-filled book uses primary source materials to elucidate this American hero s short life.
