Code: 121176


Product Facts:
M. William Phelps brings into focus the life of this famed patriot and first spy of the American Revolution, charting HaleÕs rural childhood, his education at Yale, and his work as a schoolteacher. Like many young Americans, he was soon drawn into the coloniesÕ war for independence and became a captain in WashingtonÕs army. When the general was in need of a spy, Hale willingly rose to the challenge, gathering intelligence behind British lines on Long Island, and in the end bravely sacrificing his life for the sake of American liberty. Using HaleÕs own journals and letters as well as testimonies from his friends and contemporaries, Phelps depicts the Revolution as it was seen from the ground. From the confrontation in Boston to the battle for New York City, readers experience what life was like for an ordinary soldier in the struggling Continental Army.
