Revolutionary War & Benedict Arnold’s Plot On America With Yale Law School’s Logan Beirne

Benedict Arnold was born a British subject, the second of six children of Benedict Arnold (1683–1761) and Hannah Waterman King in NorwichConnecticut on 14 January 1741. He was named after his great-grandfather Benedict Arnold, an early governor of the Colony of Rhode Island, as were his father and grandfather and an older brother who died in infancy. Only he and his sister Hannah survived to adulthood; his other siblings succumbed to yellow fever in childhood. His siblings were, in order of birth: Benedict (15 August 1738 – 30 April 1739), Hannah (9 December 1742 – 11 August 1803), Mary (4 June 1745 – 10 September 1753), Absolom (4 April 1747 – 22 July 1750), and Elizabeth (19 November 1749 – 29 September 1755). Arnold was a descendant of John Lothropp through his maternal grandmother, an ancestor of six presidents.

Arnold’s father was a successful businessman, and the family moved in the upper levels of Norwich society. He was enrolled in a private school in nearby Canterbury, Connecticut, when he was 10, with the expectation that he would eventually attend Yale College. However, the deaths of his siblings two years later may have contributed to a decline in the family fortunes, since his father took up drinking. By the time that he was 14, there was no money for private education. His father’s alcoholism and ill health kept him from training Arnold in the family mercantile business, but his mother’s family connections secured an apprenticeship for him with her cousins Daniel and Joshua Lathrop, who operated a successful apothecary and general merchandise trade in Norwich. His apprenticeship with the Lathrops lasted seven years.
