I'm taking a closer look at the Generic Scenarios to see if we can work out a larger setting or storyline:

Battle at the Crossroads (Generic Setting, AD&D 1st Edition Battlesystem)
A town called Glarus
Nearby Dwarven and Halfling communities
Crossroads Force (Good Army)
Borderland Spearhead (Evil Army)
Good Army Subcommanders: Bairn Stonewall (Dwarf), John Longthrower (Human), Slendall Lightfoot (Halfling), Radd Wainwright (Human)
Evil Army Subcommanders: Red Orcall (Orc), Ogrrall (Ogre), Terril Rippert (Goblin), Black Fang (Goblin)

Battle of Lairn (Generic Setting, AD&D 1st Edition Battlesystem)

This takes place in the same world as the Battle at the Crossroads. Three days later.
Town of Lairn
Humans and dwarves are allying to defend the realm.
Army du' LAirn (Good Army)
Baron Grange Rarrack of Lairn, F15 (Commander of the Good Army)
Good Army Sub Commanders: Randar (Plainsrider, F5), Eric of Lairn (F4), Roderick of Lairn (F9), Throckmorton

Battle of Merrel's Crossing (Generic Setting, AD&D 1st Edition Battlesystem)
This battle will determine the fate of civilization
General Garrock: King's field commander, Fighter 15 (Leader of the Good Army)
Black Derek (Leader of Evil Army)
Landforce (Good Army)
Main Body (Evil Army)
Evil Army Sub commanders: Carinol Bloodgrun (Cleric 8), Dire-hand, Stone-fist, Black Leg (Orc Boar Rider), Gorath (Troll), Keen-Eye (Orc Archer), Croosh (Orc),
Good Army Sub commanders: Mareth Harowll (Cleric 12), Kint Leafholder (Elf), Darran Wander, Zonnach Kalla, Garn Tallfellow (Halfling)

Does anyone recognize any of these references? Have they been worked into Greyhawk or the Forgotten Realms later on?

Top of my head, it would be:
- FR12 The horde Campaign
- FR15 Gold & Glory
- Maztica Campaign Setting: Book 3 - Gods & Battles
Roleplaying is not a Hobby...it's a Way of Life.

Dungeon #28 1991 Mar/Apr PIPES OF DOOM, THE AD&D Forgotten Realms 06-10 Kristofer Wade The forces of Loudwater are preparing for war! An evil army marches toward the city, led by a lich with a fearsome weapon.

This adventure is built around a giant Battlesystem battle.

FRQ2 Hordes of Dragonspear
http://tsr.bothgunsblazing.com/fr/frq2.htm

"Hordes of Dragonspear can be played using either the BATTLESYSTEM miniatures rules, or the quick combat resolution system found in DMGR2, The Castle Guide. Alternatively, a few simple changes render the entire module playable without any special rules."

DMGR2 The Castle Guide http://tsr.bothgunsblazing.com/dd1/dmgr2.htm

Has Battlesystem info for sieges.

Tome of Magic http://tsr.bothgunsblazing.com/dd1/tomep-7.htm

Includes the War Sphere, Battlesystem spells for priests.

There are actually 9 scenarios in the 2e Battlesystem book, 3 for the basic game, 3 for the intermediate game, and 3 for the advanced game.
