The Martyr and the Traitor: Nathan Hale, Moses Dunbar, and the American Revolution

In this joint biography, Virginia DeJohn Anderson, OAH Distinguished Lecturer and Professor of History, University of Colorado, Boulder, reveals how Nathan Hale, a spy for the American cause, and Moses Dunbar, a Loyalist, chose sides in perilous times. Through the experiences of two Connecticut men, Anderson will illuminate the impact of the Revolution on ordinary lives and how individual stories were remembered and forgotten after independence.
