This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Key Figures - Nathan Hale. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Nathan Hale delivered one of the most memorable lines in the history of the American Revolution. As a soldier for the Continental Army, Hale was captured during an intelligence operation in NYC.
Upon the gallows, he allegedly stated “I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.”
Whether these words are verbatim or not, Hale is considered an American hero for his dedication to his country and willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of his beliefs.
The validity of Hale’s final words remains in question. The actual quote attributed to him comes from a secondary source. John Montresor, a British soldier who witnessed the execution, reportedly repeated Hale’s words to William Hull, an American officer. Hull then publicized Hale’s statement throughout the colonies. It served as inspiration to many and epitomized the dedication of many patriots of the time.
