Benedict Arnold always carried things too far. As a boy he did crazy things like climbing atop a burning roof or picking a fight with the town constable. As a soldier, he was even more reckless. He was obsessed with being the leader and the hero in every battle, and he never wanted to surrender. He even killed his own horse once rather than give it to the enemy.
Where did the extremism lead Arnold? To treason.
