From Brothers in Arms to Bitter Enemies

Early in the Revolutionary War General George Washington came to admire the military capabilities of Benedict Arnold. Arnold’s brave actions at Quebec, Lake Champlain, and Saratoga won him many well-deserved battlefield laurels. But Arnold’s transformation from war hero to turncoat would also earn him the eternal enmity of Washington by war's end. Learn more about this interesting relationship in this three part video series with Prof. James Kirby Martin.
