Poor Richard was a city in Franklin Province. Toward the end of the Detinan Civil War, "King" Geoffrey's Army of Franklin attempted to retake Franklin Province from King Avram's forces. Under General Bell's incompetent leadership, the Army of Franklin was devastated by John the Lister's men, and the Franklin death toll included six brigadiers.
Poor Richard, Franklin and its battle are based on Franklin, Tennessee and its American Civil War battle. "Poor Richard" was a column written by Benjamin Franklin, the man for whom the real-world Franklin city is named. Within the Detinan metaphor, the name "Franklin" is reassigned to the entire province analogous to Tennessee.
