In the 1780s, Benedict Arnold and his son Richard work as land speculators in New Brunswick. He also owned a ship and traded with the West Indies, but mostly made a name for himself by buying up land and suing people at the drop of a hat.

He moved to London in 1791, and outfitted a privateer during the French Revolution, continuing trade with the West Indies despite the increasing risk. In the Carribean during the invasion of Guadelupe, he was arrested as a spy but escaped by bribing the guards, and organized militias on British-controlled islands to protect them from French invasion.

He died in debt in 1801, at the age of 60.

Benedict Arnold's role in the American revolution was as a general for George Washington. He eventually turned traitor and joined the British after he thought the Americans were going to lose the war. He was probably the best general because he could get the men to do things no other generals could get the men to do. He also tried to take Quebec's from British hands.
