Yankee Spy!  New Hampshire’s Jonathan Hale in the Civil War

July 10, 2023 @ 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm

Alan Rumrill will speak for the Washington Historical Society on July 10 and 7:15 p.m.  He will present: Yankee Spy!  New Hampshire’s Jonathan Hale in the Civil War.

Cheshire County native Jonathan Davis Hale left NH to seek his fortune in the mid-1800s.  He gained wealth in his adopted state of Tennessee, only to lose it all when the Civil War began because of his support for the Union. Consequently, he served as a spy for the Union throughout the war.  His amazing life story is a tale of wealth, happiness, patriotism, danger, loss, and, finally, heartbreak and poverty.

The meeting will be held at Camp Morgan Lodge on the north end of Millen Lake in Washington, NH.

Camp Morgan Lodge, 339 Millen Pond Road, Washington, NH 03280, USA
