“I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.”~ Nathan Hale
I live in the hamlet of Halesite, named after Nathan Hale. On this day (September 22nd) in 1776 he was hanged. He was only 21 years of age. I took photos of a prominent boulder honoring him. More below.
“The hamlet of Halesite (formerly Huntington Harbor) in Suffolk County, Long Island, is named after Hale. There is a memorial plaque set into a large boulder, which was removed from the beach nearby where Hale is thought to have landed on his fateful mission.” Read more here.
