After several years, he married a women for a second time. His wife was rich so Arnold lived a rich life in Philadelphia. In 1777, even his wife was rich, the lower-ranked man got promoted, not him. He got really angry so he became a traitor and switched his sides and fought for British. But the British never trusted Arnold so he never became commander of the army.
