The film showcases General John Burgoyne's campaign of 1777 including the Battle of Bennington. Mercer and Vertucci will elaborate on the context and impact of American General Benedict Arnold's actions culminating at Saratoga, the most consequential of Revolutionary War battles.

The film, a production of Talon Films, Inc., is based on “Benedict Arnold, Revolutionary Hero, An American Warrior Reconsidered,” the 1997 biography by James Kirby Martin, who served as executive producer and chief historian and provided commentary along with a dozen other prominent historians.
