Benedict Arnold and his troops created America's first navy out of wilderness in 1776. It was with this navy that the Americans fought the Battle of Valcour Island. More importantly though, Benedict Arnold's greatest contribution to the United States was his leadership and bravery during the Battle of Saratoga. Without Benedict Arnold, the Battle of Saratoga would have been lost; France probably wouldn't have come to America's aid; and Americamight not have become a country. Benedict Arnold did so much for the United States. He shed blood for this country twice! He put his life on the line by serving the American Cause. Not only did he give some of his own money to the Cause, but he gave his brilliant military skill to the American Revolution. Benedict Arnold's role in the making of America is a large one, and that is why he should be remembered as a hero more than as a traitor.
