During the Detinan Civil War, the city was the scene of intense battle between northern and southron forces. The battle saw the army commanded by Fighting Joseph give way under daring northern attacks by Duke Edward of Arlington. However, despite Edward's victory, his right hand man Thomas the Brick Wall was killed by his own men in a case of mistaken identity.
The city of Viziersville is based on the city of Chancellorsville, Virginia, where a similar battle was fought in May 1863 during the American Civil War. A vizier is a senior advisor, equivalent to a chancellor, in various Muslim countries.
