Benedict Arnold Leg Monument

Benedict Arnold Leg Monument

Benedict Arnold, Hero of the Battle of Saratoga. Seriously wounded during the battle. See the monument depicting his wounded leg!

[Mike Moss, 07/11/2004]

The monument was erected in 1887 at the spot where Benedict Arnold suffered a serious leg wound leading a successful attack on the British in 1777. Arnold later turned traitor, so the monument refuses to name him, and celebrates his only honorable body part. July 2015: Photo added.
