Is there really an Army base named Fort Arnold?

Years ago there used to be a Fort Arnold. Fort Arnold was constructed in West Point, New York between 1778 and 1780. It was commanded, and named after, Benedict Arnold before he betrayed the Revolutionary Army and defected to the British. It was later renamed as Fort Clinton after General James Clinton, but after the war the fort was neglected and later demolished for expansion of the United States Military Academy at West Point.
