How did Nathan hale become an American legend?

Before Nathan Hale became a spy, he was a school teacher. Once he joined the army and they were in need of a spy to figure out when the British would attack, Nathan Hale elected himself. Nathan Hale went to the British encampment and became a "School Teacher" for his disguise. One day as Nathan was in a local pub, a British officer noticed Nathan Hale and thought he looked very familiar. Nathan Hale had powder burns on his right cheek from a musket. A school teacher would not of had this. Due to Nathan hales burns on his face, and how uncommon it looked. They figured out that he was a spy. And hung him. When he was hung the last words he spoke were "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country." and this is what Nathan Hale is most known for. -Written by a student from Ms.Rosas's class. 2010.

When did Patrick Henry write you regret that you have but one life to give for your country?

Patrick Henry did not write those words. He yelled them loud and clear, and he spoke for himself. He said, I regret that I have but one life to give for my country. Give me liberty or give me death." A slight correction. Patrick Henry, in a speech before the Virginia Convention, concluded with the now justly famous quote, "As for me, give me liberty or give me death." The quote, "I regret I have but one life to give for my country" is a quote attributed to Nathan Hale. He volunteered as a spy during the War for Independence and was caught by the British, who condemned him to hanging. At his hanging, he was asked if he did not have some regrets that he wished to confess to the Lord or those around. He is said to have declared, "I regret that I have but one life to give for my country." As a side note, some have recently misquoted this as "...one life to LOSE for my country." This was not what witnesses reported him saying.
