    We talk really badly about Aaron Burr sometimes and, yeah, he deserves it. But he doesn't seem to be nearly as bad of a guy as James Wilkinson!

    Join us as we discuss...

    • Wilkinson's uncanny ability to move up through military ranks,
    • how the Spanish paid Wilkinson to promote their interests,
    • the betrayal of the Spanish by Wilkinson,
    • an unlikely friendship and partnership between Burr and Wilkinson,
    • Wilkinson's many blunders and trials,
    • and much more!
