Or . . . how Benedict Arnold sold West Point to the British
27 August 2006 | by (Tujunga California) – See all my reviews

In this version, Brigadier General Benedict Arnold is called General Hugh Scott (Kent Smith 1907-1985), Major John Andre the British spy (Bill Fletcher 1922-)and he is captured by Daniel Boone (Fess Parker 1924-) and his native American Indian scout Mingo (Ed Ames a/k/a Edmund Dantes Urick 1927-). Daniel Boone was born in 1734 and died in 1820, during the American revolution he stayed in Kentucky and later moved into the Ohio Valley after the war. He did not venture east to West Point in New York nor meet General Arnold or Major Andre. Three soldiers in General George Washington's militia captured Major Andre. There is no mention of a native American Indian traveling companion to Boone and had there been, unlike Mingo who goes to a tavern and has a drink with Boone, in real life he would have not been allowed to come in and it was against the law to sell alcohol to native American Indians until 1964. Hard to see how anyone could keep a straight face in the making of this episode? Boone was called an "Indian Killer" and doubtful he had any for friends. Sarge Booker of Tujunga, Caifornia
