Benedict Arnold
By Cathy Pearl

1     The Revolutionary War had started. The Americans would need smart people to help them win. One man who tried to help was Benedict Arnold. People thought that he wanted the Americans to win. Arnold was really a traitor. He secretly tried to help the British win the war.
2     In the beginning of the war, Benedict Arnold led an army into Canada. They had a difficult trip. They went through Maine during the winter. The army ran out of food. They had to eat bark and shoe leather. Finally, Arnold got to Quebec. He battled against British soldiers. He was wounded in the battle. His army lost and they had to leave Canada.
3     Later in the war, Arnold defended Fort Stanwix from the British. The British wanted this fort to help them when they attacked Albany. Arnold was able to win this battle. This was an important victory for the Americans. It gave them the strength to keep fighting.
