ORDER IN THE COURT! Welcome to the trial of Benedict Arnold. I will first be calling his wife, Peggy, to the stand.
Wife to the Stand
Did you or did not know your husband is a traitor, and did you help him escape?
Benedict Arnold arriving to the courthouse in a very angry and tense manner.
Fellow General to the Stand
Well there were a few reasons...
At the start of the trial, the judge calls Peggy Shippen-Arnold to the stand to get the ball rolling.
When Arnold was exposed, Peggy helped him escape and then hid the evidence of her doing so. When she was tried over it, so became hysterical to protect herself from questioning and imprisonment.
Guilty or Innocent?
I find Benedict Arnold GUILTY
Arnold became a traitor due to greed, mounting debt, hatred of the Continental Congress and other officers, and a secret hope for the colonies to stay under British control.
What caused Arnold to switch sides?

I pictured Benedict to be ruled guilty because of the large amount of evidence and national hatred towards him.
