The story "A Man Without a Country" was based on Benedict Arnold, the patriot turned traitor, yet the British never trusted him, so he died a lonely man without a county. This classic was written by Edward Everett Hale, born this day, April 3, 1822. The nephew of Revolutionary hero Nathan Hale, Edward was editor of the Boston Daily and chaplain of the U.S. Senate. Edward Everett Hale wrote: "I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I should do and, with the help of God, I will do."
