textbook:

Join me in a bit of delayed patriotism will you? Nathan Hale is probably in my top 10 American history figures of all time, and I imagine many others share that adoration. His exact appearance is still a mystery, there were no portraits or likenesses of him created during his life. Although he met his end as a spy captured by the British during the revolution, he was not always able to participate in the effort. Due to his studies at Yale and other commitments, he was kept from joining the Militia. It was when the army needed somebody to go behind enemy lines that he volunteered, ultimately leading to his untimely demise. History has gilded his end, as it tends to do, with the famous quote, “I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.” Good man. 1.
