Blacksheep Sunday: Benedict Arnold

Black sheep in the family? Of course, we all have (at least) one, right?
The main point to consider is: Was your ancestor really a black sheep? Or was it the situation at hand that others judge him (or her) to be a black sheep?

Let’s make an example of: General Benedict Arnold
In American history, he was a turncoat. He leaked troop movements to the British forces of General Charles Cornwallis, and got caught.

In Canadian history, he did not amount to very much either; he was not a Loyalist. He was “EXPUNGED” from the List.

And, on that note, he is probably family.
