Before the BattleEdit
After the battle of Sekigahara, Ieyasu Tokugawa managed to retreat to Edo alive with the remaining Tokugawa retainers. In 1615 Hideyori Toyotomi mobilized his army and attacked Ieyasu to finish him for good.
Hideyori Toyotomi arrived at Edo with his army but Ieyasu hasn't yet arrived in Edo so the castle was under Hidetada Tokugawa's control. The Toyotomi forces attacked from all sides: Yukimura Sanada and Masayuki Sanada from the south, Kanetsugu Naoe and Keiji Maeda from the west and Mitsunari Ishida and Hideie Ukita from the north. First Yukimura and Masayuki managed to take Edo Castles smaller keep and the rest of the army infiltrated the castle. By the time Ieyasu and his army arrived the castle was captured and Ina and Hidetada Tokugawa were killed. When Ieyasu arrived he camped at the northeast. The Toyotomi retainers charged Ieyasu's main camp, slaining Ieyasu Tokugawa, Tadakatsu Honda, Hanzo Hattori and Naomasa Ii.
