Captain Nathan Hale hanged in Manhattan on September 22, 1776

Nathan Hale was arrested as a spy for the Colonials in a Manhattan tavern by British Major Robert Rogers of the Queen’s Rangers. Physical evidence of Hale’s espionage was found on his person. On the morning of September 22, 1776, he was marched to the Park of Artillery (66th street and Third avenue) and hanged. While there are several interpretations of his final words, he is famously remembered as having said, “I only regret that I have but one life to give to my country.”
