Image of item
E-book

Downloadable ebook file.

Available as a download from OWWL2go with a valid OWWL borrower card.
Complete with maps and illustrations, this dual biography examines and compares two would-be patriots. One became the father of our country. The other became America's most notorious traitor. Surprisingly, Washington and Arnold admired each other. Washington saw Arnold as a true fighting soldier whose merits were unjustly neglected by his superiors and the Continental Congress. Arnold respected Washington as a worthy commander in chief. They even shared enemies. Yet, while Washington rose above his enemies, Arnold became embittered by them.
