After the Arathorian Empire levied heavy taxes upon their colonists in Azeroth to fund the glutted and overstretched forces of the Arathorian Legion, protests erupted throughout the Azerothian colonies of the empire. Hoping to make an example of the protesters in Lakeshire who had thrown bottles and rubbish at the Arathorian Legionnaires, an order was given in 6 P.C. for the eldest male of each family of the town to be rounded up and cut to pieces by the Arathorian soldiers. The bloodbath and brutal violence that followed sparked the War for Stormwind's Independence, only serving as a martyred rallying cry for the Stormwind Militia led by Logan Wrynn I.
