The River of Death was a river in Peachtree Province, Detina. After a loyal army led by General Guildenstern took Rising Rock, Franklin Province during the Detinan Civil War, it advanced into Peachtree Province for the first time since that province declared its rebellion against King Avram. The Army of Franklin, commanded by Thraxton the Braggart, reinforced by James of Broadpath's wing of the Army of Southern Parthenia, met the southrons in battle along the River of Death. They enjoyed a rare numerical advantage over the loyal forces as well as some effective spells cast by Thraxton, and they soundly defeated Guildenstern's force, driving the southrons out of Peachtree Province and back to Franklin. If not for the heroic rear guard action of Doubting George, the southrons would have been routed altogether. This battle would prove to be the northerners' last decisive tactical victory of the war.

Literary CommentEdit

The Battle of the River of Death is analogous to the Battle of Chickamauga in the American Civil War. That battle was also named for a nearby river. The Cherokee name "Chickamauga" translates to "River of Death."
