I'm convinced they got John Lithgow to play Washington purely so he could lip sync that "bbbrrrr" noise she made.

Hey we all make mistakes. Trump dodged the draft, and colluded with a hostile foreign enemy to become president. And he's still in office and beloved by white supremacists, beta cuck incels in their moms' basements, and toothless neo-confederates.

I am pretty skeptical of any narrative that involves a man being "seduced" into doing something morally wrong by a woman. History is very quick to entirely blame the sins of men onto their wives. Peggy was definitely very involved, but Benedict made his own decisions too.

They bullied the crap out of Benedict Arnold. As a final insult they dug up his leg Benedict lost earlier in the war before his betrayal to bury it with honors.

OMG You guys got John Lithgow???? O.O P. S. John Arnold was accepted by the British army. There's some rather unfortunate misinformation in this video.

"Head"?!?!? Drunk or not, she should have been able to do better than that! Yeah, names for the various and sundry forces can be very complicated, especially back then, but Washington had one of the easiest positions to remember as tip-top man up the totem pole for the Continental Army--super easy! Besides, being drunk a substantial amount of the time didn't keep those in the various and sundry forces with all their complex names from fighting the war and keeping things more or less straight. I agree that Andre was a romantic figure and great loss; Arnold was a different story. That there will be changes in sides in a civil war is part of the nature of the beast. Yet while one can take oneself over to the other side and even try to induce the men under your command to do so as well, giving up fortifications and trying to use the position of trustee to lure the top general into a trap to become at best a prisoner of war is simply unforgivable. Also, the British DID give Arnold some commands to make use of his talents and knowledge. It's a bit to grim for the humor of drunk history to report leading a raid to set fire to lands near one's childhood home and then slaughter the prisoners surrendered to you is something quite different. THAT is why Arnold became hated even by many of the British, with the irony that it was only the most loyal royalists who would receive him in merry old England, and a brief attempt at a return to "home" in Canada quickly ended, as even they wouldn't have him.
