    The sneaking soldier

    Nathan Hale was a Connecticut soldier who, during the Revolutionary War, was sent as a spy to find plans from the British troop patterns.

    Nathan Hale was born in Connecticut in 1755. At the age of 18 he graduated from Yale and became a teacher for a short time. He was quickly accepted into a Connecticut force and became 1st lieutenant. It was shown he had doubts about killing on some missions but still needed to fight for his country. He got that chance when on September 8th, 1776, he was accepted for a spy mission to go behind enemy lines and find military plans. Just 13 days after, on September 21st, he was found out. Not much is known on who found/ratted him out, but nonetheless he was hanged the next day.
