Nathan Hale

Nathan Hale may be Connecticut's foremost hero of the Revolutionary War. He's remembered for being captured as a spy, and for his final words, "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country."

That's what everybody knows. However, there was more to his life.

A man whose dignity, composure and eloquence in the final moments in life so moved both his countrymen and his captors, that he has been deemed worthy of honor ... and, here in Manchester, of having a school named in his memory.
