    WRONG!

    You got the Frenchish name right; hint hint...but Andre was the Brit soldier nabbed soon after Arnold's treason was discovered and later executed as a spy.

    Yes, and he was one day away from pulling of the kidnapping when his "adopted" British unit was ordered on board ship for deployment. He later "deserted" and made his way back to Virginia where he was returned to civilian life.
