Homage To Agent 13

Not only was General James Wilkinson the U.S. Army's commanding officer, he was also "Agent 13 in service to the Spanish Crown."  

A scholastic work entitled "Agent 13 In The North Country, mentioned that the author "...entered the archives with some previous knowledge of Agent 13’s malfeasance [and was]...astounded by the fact that several of General Wilkinson’s letters of correspondence were among its [the archives's] contents.  An exhibit was designed that highlighted General Wilkinson and his activities in the War of 1812.

More about that colorful character, James Wilkinson can be found here
