funny you should mention

funny you should mention that.. if it weren't for Benedict Arnold, its highly likely we would never have won the American Revolution, so personally i would never attach that name to Benton. It is a shame he[arnold] turned on the precipice of victory, but looking at what happened, i have a hard time hating him too much. Wikipedia gives both sides of him a decent look, but the book "A rabble in arms" tells the story better, its a part of history conveniently ignored, but we all owe him our freedom[we owe that to lots of people, but he is one of them].
