The Battle of Commissioner Mountain was fought during the Marthasville Campaign of the Detinan Civil War. It was the most significant frontal assault launched by Southron General Hesmucet against the Northern Army of Franklin under General Joseph the Gamecock, ending in a tactical defeat for the Northern forces. Strategically, however, the battle failed to deliver the result that Geoffrey's "kingdom" desperately needed, namely a halt to Hesmucet's advance on Marthasville.
The Battle of Commissioner Mountain is based on the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain (June 27, 1864). A man, Kenesaw Mountain Landis (1866–1944), was named for this battle, and served as the first Commissioner of Major League Baseball, from 1920 until his death.
