Young fans of the Broadway smash Hamilton will enjoy this riveting nonfiction picture book that unfolds like a play, telling a story from American history. Gravely injured and with little chance for more military honors, Major General Benedict Arnold seeks reward and recognition another way. He contacts Major John Andr#65533;, the new head of British intelligence and another man determined to prove himself. Arnold and Andr#65533; strike a deal and use Arnold's intelligence to take over West Point, the strategic American fort. The plan ultimately fails, leading to Andr#65533;'s capture and death and Arnold's loss of reward and glory. Author Selene Castrovilla and illustrator John O'Brien brilliantly capture the tensions and high drama of these two revolutionary rogues by highlighting their similarities and differences and demonstrating how they brought about their own tragic ends. This title also includes an afterword, timelines of the lives of both men, an extensive bibliography, and a list of key places to visit.
