Some of the more interesting battles took place in mountain passes or in tight little valleys between mountains...perfect spots for ambushes. 

Other geology of interest include the rule of not being caught with one's army's back to a big river. Also  trials and tribulations were created by fording large or flooded rivers such as Lee's army crossing the Potomac during the retreat from Gettysburg. 

Geology and weather can combine to present a hellish scenario such as when Sherman's Army in Eastern Georgia had to wade through the saw grass swamps or when they were deep in sticky clay mud during heavy rains. :X
