So where is the statue dedicated to Benedict Arnold?

They're not statues of Arnold but both are monuments to his victories for the revolution.

There's the Valcour Island Monument and the Boot Monument on the Saratoga battlefield.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said the Commonwealth needed to "right those wrongs" of the past to properly address racial injustice.

Not terribly specific. What do they actually want? I don't buy into this national guilt trip rubbish over past slavery. The biggest slavers were the Africans themselves.

The British Empire has a lot of blood on its hands.

That has to be acknowledged.

Why do you think it hasn't been acknowledged?

They lost their empire, so I guess that is punishment, but have there ever been formal apologies to the countries they invaded and the consequences to the indigenous peoples?
