For almost 50 years, General James Wilkinson, as greedy, duplicitous, and dishonest as he was charming, talented, and charismatic, interacted with the key people and events of early American history – presidents, generals, patriots, traitors, and explorers (including Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Madison, Burr, Benedict Arnold, and Meriwether Lewis) over the course of three wars. He unabashedly embezzled funds, pursued military glory, and conspired to seize a vast part of the U.S. territory while acting as Commander of the U.S. Army. All this led to trials, court martials, madness, and finally death in a Mexican opium den. This screenplay was a Quarter Finalist in the Writer's Network Screenplay Competition and in the Top Ten Percent in the BlueCat Screenplay Competition.
