Yeah...didn't like that. The underlying meaning is still the same and technically both still fit despite their targeting.
I'll always remember Benedict Arnold's death as 1801. I had a book of tricky questions back in my early years and it asked, in short Q: Why did Benedict Arnold not get a military burial with honors in 1800? (A: Because he died in 1801, you idiot!)
I'm sure many Americans at the time wanted to bury him in 1800 anyways, the matter of his not being dead yet being a trifling matter.

No, I'll just be here in the corner, keeping TPH company. You see, Benedict Arnold isn't really much of a significant name in my head. He means about as much to me as General Montcalm means to you, you're most likely aware of him if you're trivia savvy, you probably know what he's famous for, but that's it.
For the record, I said John Paul Jones (mixing him up a bit with Lafitte to give him the "notoriety" of a pirate the clue required) and didn't look back.

So you think somehow he's from around 200 BC?
Perhaps he conflates him with Judas Iscariot (another one of the two or three biggest traitors in history.)
