Biography: Benedict Arnold The name Benedict Arnold is synonymous with that of a traitor. And yet, Major General Benedict Arnold had served as one of the greatest military leaders in the Revolutionary War. This video chronicles the life of Arnold, who led many decisive victories over the British, and it investigates the chain of events that led the commander to betray his own country. Fate dealt Arnold a hand which he was not prepared to accept. Humiliated and spurned by his own comrades in arms, he succumbed to less than noble impulses. Diaries, letters, and commentary by historians are combined with reenactments to tell the story of America's most infamous traitor. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
