A Look at Benedict Arnold
American Heritage magazine has published an interesting article on Benedict Arnold, entitled "On the Trail of Benedict Arnold." It is written by historian and author W. D. Wetherell.
The article explores the legacy of a man who was one of the greatest heroes of the American Revolution - and also the most despised traitor in American history.
Arnold continues to fascinate us today. How could a man so courageously committed to the cause of America go on to betray that cause (as well as his friendship with George Washington - a man in many ways like a father to him)?
Check out the article, and then let us know what you think of Benedict Arnold.
