Nathan Hale Internet Activity

Captain Nathan Hale was just 21 when he was captured by the British and hanged for being a spy. While much has been written about this Revolutionary War figure, the primary sources—letters and eye witness accounts—that could have provided a more complete picture of his final days, have been lost or destroyed.

Use the Web sites below to research the details of Hale's spy mission and his death. Create a chart to record the similarities and differences in the information provided in these sites. Then write a statement of what you believe happened. You may want to conduct more research to support your position.
