Many of the records refer to MA01, "Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors in the 
War of the Revolution."  While the inclusion of the militia regiments was fairly
straightforward, there were 15 continental line regiments at the battles whose 
records do not specifically list Saratoga battles information.  However, the 
national archives confirm that the persons included were there during the 
battle dates.  Sometimes the company commander listed was toward the end
of the enlistment period, not the one at the time of the battles.  The additional 
information in each record usually indicates who the Captain was in 1777. If the
enlstment period is in both the main file and in the additional information, then
the one in the main file is at the time of the battles, the other later in the
period.

Arnold, Benedict:
Additional mililtary information: Prior to the Saratoga Campaign he
performed brilliantly in his various engagements:  the capture of Fort
Ticonderoga (with Ethan Allen), the march to Quebec City and the stubborn
retreat on Lake Champlain that prevented a British invasion, and his march
to Fort Stanwix, forcing General St. Leger to retreat just prior to the
Saratoga Campaign.  His actions at the Saratoga battles were decisive in
winning that campaign. (see also Congressional Act under Lincoln, Benjamin)
His subsequent actions were reprehensible: falling in with a Loyalist
group and marrying into a Loyalist family while military governor of
Philadelphia, his providing military intelligence to Sir Henry Clinton,
and then, his offer as commandant of West Point to surrender the fort
to the British.  After his escape to New York to join Clinton, he fought
on the side of the British until he sailed to England with Cornwallis after
his surrender.  He was generally treated poorly there.
Other: He and his second wife are buried in St.  Mary's Church, Battersea,
Eng.  Born 14 Jan 1741 in Norwich, CT, he first married Margaret Mansfield on
22 Feb 1767.  They had three sons.  She died Jun 1775.  He married Margaret
Shippen, an 18 year old daughter of a Loyalist family in Philadelphia.  She
went to England with her husband and died there in 1804.  He died 14 Jun 1801.
