|For Gods' Sake John|
|War Between the Provinces|
|Cause of Death:||Shot in combat|
For Gods' Sake John was an officer in "King" Geoffrey's army during the Detinan Civil War. He earned his ekename through constant repetition of the phrase "For gods' sake." He commanded a brigade in the Army of Franklin. Like many of his colleagues, he chafed under the command of General Bell, who gave reckless orders and then blamed his subordinates for their failure. After being accused of cowardice by Bell before the Battle of Ramblerton, For Gods' Sake John sought to redeem himself by not shying away from danger, and as a result, he was shot by Smitty while leading his brigade.
For Gods' Sake John is based on the Confederate Brigadier General John Adams. Adams was of no relation to President John Adams. However, the character's name is almost certainly a pun on the song "Sit Down, John" in the musical 1776. In the song, future President Adams harangues his colleagues in the Continental Congress to draft a Declaration of Independence and is repeatedly told by the chorus "For God's sake, John, sit down!"
