Synopsis

An award-winning writer on the American Revolution, Arthur Lefkowitz spent years searching through archival materials to paint splendid and compelling portraits of Arnold's amazing cast of veterans whose fates offer a fascinating glimpse into the lives of early American patriots. His original monograph begins with an overview of the failed Canadian invasion where Arnold's troops continued fighting after he fell wounded and only surrendered when hopelessly outnumbered and trapped inside the city, before following these men into prison where some devised intricate plots to break out and even seize weapons to capture the city. Despite their hardships, many returned to the rebel army to continue their fight for independence.



Arnold's men were worthy of particular notice and they never disappointed him. Some of those portrayed in detail include Charles Porterfield, who led troops at Brandywine; Daniel Morgan, the hero of Cowpens; Henry Dearborn and Timothy Bigelow, who fought alongside their old commander at Saratoga; Christian Febriger and Return Jonathan Meigs, who were at the forefront of the attack on Stony Point; Simeon Thayer, who refused to surrender Fort Mifflin; and Colonel Aaron Burr, whose impressive wartime record was marred by his tumultuous political career. Original, fast-paced, and deeply researched, Benedict Arnold in the Company of Heroes is essential reading for everyone interested in the endlessly fascinating American Revolution.
