Behind the scenesEdit
The bottle of wine, together with General McGann's story and the skeleton shackled inside a wall across the room, is a reference to the short story "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allan Poe. In the short story, a man hates another for insulting him. As revenge for the slight, the murderer lures his victim down into a cellar by promising him a drink of Amontillado wine, and buries him alive inside a wall in this same fashion. This short story was actually based on an urban legend about Fort Independence, wherein an officer is buried alive by the soldiers for killing a favored officer in a duel. In-game the wine bottle has the name "P. Edgar" written on it.
