The Battle of Phorktown Hill was the last battle of the Long Kingdomian Revolution fought from February 19, 1769 – March 12, 1770. It resulted in the Pyrrhic victory of The Spanish and Long Kingdomian Forces, and the surrender of the Philimania army.

On February 18, 1769, Philimanian forces were pushed back to the capital of Philimania at that time. Keane Tomlinson, the general at that time, decided to made a last-ditch attempt to drive out the Spanish and Long Kingdomians. So in the morning of February 19, 1769, Keane Tomlinson and the remaining 82,000 soldiers fortified themselves on Phorktown Hill and prepared themselves for the attack.
