Though the Battle of Athenz was obviously decisive to the Athenian/Spartan conflict—or at least temporarily so, there were far more important ripple effects. The Nobunaga referred to in the plaque was none other than Nobunaga-Gaisen.
Essential to the history of the xthaere was the humiliation that Nobunaga-Gaisen experienced by hiring his forces out as mercenaries. Even though they were successful in battle, he was ashamed at how low he had sunk. After the fighting was over, he wandered off alone, heading what we would call northeast. He had heard of a place where three rivers joined together with such strange force that the flesh would be stripped off the largest of Uintotheria in moments.
Unbeknownst to him, two of his most loyal soldiers followed him.
This plaque is mounted on the interior of the building. Call the gallery for their hours: 706-546-8559.
