General Wilkenson is, by all accounts, a fascinating character of the early years of the USA, one who for understandable reasons, has been shorted on the ink. The book, while it seems to do a pretty good job of quoting from sources, etc., utterly fails to provide citations in the text of the book. That's the main reason, at this point, for the 2 star rating. Its a historical work or purports to be - if there aren't functional citations, it has a serious problem. Since finishing the book, I've discovered a bibliography. It is possible that this nook edition, unlike my other nookbooks, cut the cites from the main text. If so, shame on you.
