Benedict Arnold became a traitor because he did not agree with America.He was a great general and will always be remembered. Benedict Arnold was dissatisfied with his treatment by the Congress and other army officers, feeling he was not getting the recognition he deserved for his part in major batt…les, like the one at Saratoga. He then approached the British with a plan to turn over the American fort at West Point, New York to the British. West Point was extremely important to the colonists because it commanded the Hudson River and prevented British warships from sailing down from Canada and cutting the New England colonies off from the rest of the colonies. When the plan was found out, he escaped to England and became an officer in the British army. At Saratoga, Arnold had played a major role in the winning of the battle and was even wounded in the leg. Horatio Gates took the honors though. Later, a comment was made by colonial soldiers about Arnold to the effect that if they ever caught him,he would be hanged as a traitor but that the leg that was wounded at Saratoga would be cut off and buried with full military honors. He was considered a traitor in 1779. ( Full Answer )

Well she jumped really high and tried to touch a cloud, but she missed the cloud and accidently touched the moon. Then, she pulled out a chunk of it and bit it. It tasted rotten so she touched the Sun instead. She had severe burn injuries on he face and left arm up to her shoulder blade. She then ju…mped back down and hit a plane, leaving her with no leg. Abraham Lincoln, her long lost cousin from the future, then warped under her and caught her. She was okay. But later, she was stitching the American flag with Betsy Ross and pricked herself with the sewing needle. Her cat, Mitzie, then licked the blood, thinking it was food and died.

Arnold helped capture Fort Ticonderoga, which was not a battlebut was very important, but most of the credit is due to EthanAllen and the Green Mountain Boys. Arnold led an expedition throughthe Maine wilderness and participated in the Siege of Quebec, whichfailed to capture that city. Arnold suffer…ed a gunshot to the legat Quebec, which broke his thigh bone. . Arnold was in the Battle of Saratoga, and much credit for thefinal victory there was his, though the overall commander, HoratioGates, tried to hog all the credit, gave no credit to Arnold, andperhaps thereby helped fuel Arnold's eventual traitorous turncoatactions. . The same leg was broken again just at the end of the Battle ofSaratoga, when Arnold's horse was shot beneath him and fell on himas it died. After that Arnold's twice-broken leg was several inchesshorter than the other one. If I do say so myself that's a lot ofstuff that happened to Benedict Arnold . ( Full Answer )
