Join us as author James Nelson recounts the amazing story of Benedict Arnold’s early Revolutionary heroics in his book Benedict Arnold’s Navy: The Ragtag Fleet That Lost the Battle of Lake Champlain but Won the American Revolution.
Before becoming America’s most famous traitor, Benedict Arnold was known as one of the greatest fighting generals of the Continental Army and is credited with building America’s first naval fleets. Organizing a motley group of ships and vessels, Arnold was able to delay the British fleet from sailing down Lake Champlain to reinforce troops engaged in battle with a weary Continental Army. With his shrewd leadership, many argued he saved the Revolution.
