Nathan Hale, An American Hero

 4/02/2023 @ 2:00 pm

Bev York will present an interactive illustrated presentation on Connecticut’s State Hero, Nathan Hale. In 1776, Hale was captured by the British on Long Island and hanged as a spy. The story of Nathan and his patriotic family (six sons fought in the Revolution) is one of great sacrifice for America’s independence.
York is a local historian who teaches at Quinebaug Valley Community College. She has served as the administrator of the Nathan Hale Homestead in Coventry, the director and educator of the Mill Museum in Willimantic and is currently the curator of The America Museum. She serves as the director of Windham Arts which promotes art, culture, history and tourism in the region. York is passionate about teaching American History by sharing local and relevant stories.
