Essay by Eugene Scheel. “[Washington’s] plan called for a soldier who could ride stealthily through the many American pickets and board a boat that would cross the Hudson. In New York, the American would present himself as a deserter and gain Arnold's confidence. With the aid of an accomplice, the American would kidnap Arnold and hustle him aboard a waiting boat.” (Submitted on July 17, 2008.)
