From titles:
"During the early stages of the American Revolution, turncoat Benedict Arnold handed over secrets regarding the strategic position of Fort Griswold in Groton, Connecticut to the British.

On September 6, 1781, both sides suffered heavy casualties.

With assistance from Arnold, British forces captured the fort after burning the nearby town of New London, attacking the famous Shaw Mansion, which then served as a naval office, and slaying the chief officer, Colonel William Ledyard, who had already surrendered.

In September of 2006, marking the 225th anniversary commemoration, men and women came from all over the country for the reenactment." - WS
