Help with a particle

Hello, (potentially stupid question)

I have been told that this に particle (from そこに on line 56) refers to 本能寺 by a Japanese person. However, if this is so, why is it using に instead of で.

I was thinking that it refers to the time of the attack…

Thanks for any help.

A native I asked said that it’s because に is working with くる in 攻めてくる. You use に to くる with a place, not で.

But this person is not a Japanese teacher. Still, it feels right to me.

Ah, of course! I overlooked the くる. That sounds right to me now, too. Thank you.
