Storyline

On the glorious battlefields of the American Revolution, two great generals distinguished themselves; George Washington and Benedict Arnold. Washington is remembered as America's founding father, Arnold as America's most notorious traitor. Benedict Arnold rose from humble origins to become the most respected and feared of America's generals. He won brilliant military victories against the English colonists and was Washington's favorite soldier. But two conflicting forces battled inside Arnold's heart; a deep concern for his country and his passionate love for an enchanting and manipulative English woman, Peggy Shippen. Blinded by desire, Arnold defected to the English army, orchestrating an attempt to assassinate his own mentor, George Washington. Written by Anonymous

A Question Of History
14 January 2003 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

I thought that this film was very interesting. However, I wouldn't have minded if they would have stretched this out a bit in order to flesh the characters out a bit more. Also, some more historical background would have been useful for the uninitiated.

However, Kelsey Grammer does a splendid job as George Washington, and Aidan Quinn plays the title role with splash and vigor. We got a fairly good idea on his character's motivations.

Overall, a very educational and entertaining TV flick- kind of a History Lite.
