Under General Philip Schuyler’s command in 1776, Arnold began building a navy on Lake Champlain to resist the expected British advance from Canada toward Ticonderoga and the upper Hudson Valley. With his ﬂeet complete, Arnold sailed north with ten ships in August 1776 to block a British advance. The far stronger British ﬂeet bested the Continental forces on October 11, 1776 in the Battle of Valcour Island, but Arnold managed to set ﬁre to his vessel and stay with the ship until the ﬂames made it impossible for the enemy to strike its colors on their arrival.

In January 1780, after listening to his spirited defense, the court acquitted him of fraud but convicted him of improper conduct in the matter of the illegal pass and sentenced him to an ofﬁcial public reprimand, which Washington duly issued several months later.
