Title: Benedict Arnold

Description: Benedict Arnold (1741-1801), American pharmacist, merchant and general in the Continental Army during the American Revolution, who was one of George Washington's most able and bravest field commanders (he helped Ethan Allen capture Fort Ticonderoga, New York, in 1775, was several times wounded in the abortive attempt to seize Quebec in 1775, relieved and saved Fort Stanwix (Fort Schuyler) in 1777, and was most instrumental in defeating the British Army under General John Burgoyne at Saratoga in 1777, where he was again seriously wounded; harboring resentment of his ill-treatment by the Continental Congress in slowly advancing him in rank and giving him back salary (many other, less gifted American officers took credit for Arnold's significant achievements during the Revolutionary War), and heavily influenced by his second wife, Margaret "Peggy" Shippen Arnold, he betrayed the American cause and unsuccessfully attempted to turn over West Point to the British in 1780, a fortress he then commanded; he escaped to fight with British forces and later moved to England, where he died in near poverty; Arnold's name is synonymously known with the word "traitor" betrayers; Continental Army; espionage;
