Today is the two hundred and thirty-fifth (235th) anniversary of the execution of Nathan Hale, a twenty-one year old schoolmaster from Connecticut, and a captain in the Continental Army, who was hanged in New York City by the British Army on Sunday 22 September 1776 for being a spy during the American Revolutionary War.

His famous last words were,

"I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country."
