21 September 1780

Benedict Arnold meets with Maj. John Andre to discuss surrendering the fortification of West Point to the British. Arnold had already begun to cement his legacy with his heroic actions at Ticonderoga, Ridgefield, and Saratoga. A skillful and intelligent leader, Arnold had earned the praise of Gen. Washington and was given command of West Point. During his time in service to the Continental Army, he had accrued a sizeable debt and was overlooked by the Continental Congress in promotions. These factors motivated Arnold to turn to the British and abandon the patriot cause. Meeting with Maj. Andre, the British head of intelligence in the war, Arnold proposed surrendering the fort and obtaining a commission with the British army. The plot was uncovered following the capture of Maj. Andre, leading to his execution by the Americans; and Arnold was forced to flee capture. West Point remained in American hands, but the legacy of Benedict Arnold would forever be tarnished and his name would become synonymous with traitor in American lexicon. See MoreSee Less

American forces under Gen. Winfield Scott capture Mexico City during the Mexican-American War. The Mexican capital was the primary objective of American forces in their central Mexico campaign. After capturing the coastal city of Vera Cruz, American troops marched west to seize the capital and end the conflict. On 8 September 1847, US troops were on the outskirts of Mexico City. A series of battles was fought at Molino del Rey and Chapultepec, resulting in American victories and allowing US forces to launch their attack into the city. Despite being outnumbered two-to-one, the US overwhelmed the Mexican forces and seized the city, which led to Mexican capitulation and victory for the United States in the Mexican-American War. The battle is remembered in the first stanza of the Marine Corps hymn “From the Halls of Montezuma.” See MoreSee Less
