Nathan Hale was an American soldier and spy for the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. He volunteered for an intelligence-gathering mission in New York and was captured by the British and executed.
Nathan Hale evidence claims that he was duped by Major Robert Rogers of the Queen’s Rangers, who somehow recognized Hale. Hale, who thought he was among friends, confessed his secret and was sent to General Howe of the British Army to be hanged.
