ABSTRACT
The article presents a history of British Brigadier Benedict Arnold's last homecoming which only served to secure his place in the history books as the most despised traitor of the U.S. during its Revolution against Great Britain. It was September 6, 1781, and Brigadier Benedict Arnold of the British army was coming home. Several years of Revolutionary War had left the Connecticut town of New London physically unscathed.
