Nathan Hale: Patriot Spy

by Shannon Zemlicka


Quick Overview

This introductory biography relates Hale's story from the time of his education at Yale to his work as a spy for General Washington and ultimate execution during the American Revolution. The author includes little-known facts such as Hale, the teacher, offering early morning classes to girls at a time when only boys, for the most part, received formal education. After noting the colonial idea of spies as cheats and liars, readers are told of Hale's high degree of patriotism: "-if spying would help his country, it was honorable to him."


Introducing new readers to some of history's most interesting and important people, these biographies focus on the pivotal episodes that show what kind of person the subject is (or was) and how he or she came to be famous. Although written in a story format, these books are not fictionalized accounts. A chronology of major events follows the story, along with a brief summary of the subject's life. As the Revolutionary War began, Nathan Hale immediately joined up on the side of the Patriots. When General Washington needed a spy, Hale was the only man to volunteer for the job. In the end, Hale lost his life for his beliefs and became a true American hero. Size 0.2" H x 8.3" L x 5.7" W, 48 pages
