As beautiful Philadelphia socialite Peggy Shippen , Barbara Rinella portrays the captivating woman based on the historical novel The Traitor’s Wife: The Woman Behind Benedict Arnold and the Plan to Betray America.
Rinella takes us on a journey through some of the most poignant events of the American Revolution. Learn how the strong willed 18-year old beauty who loves to party with the British officers reacts to 37-year old Benedict Arnold when he comes to Philly as the Military Governor under General Washington and drives the British out.
