Verses and Geography supporting the North American model

There are two places that we know for sure were the Book of Mor­mon took place that would be the Hill Cumorah and Zara­hem­la found across from Nau­voo (D&C 125:3).

Based on were the Hill Cumorah is we can know where the land of des­o­la­tion is and then we can know where the land Boun­ti­ful is, the west sea, the nar­row neck and Zara­hem­la.

Ether chap­ter 15 talks about the Jared­ites: how 2 mil­lion Jared­ites were killed, and their bones being the land of Des­o­la­tion. In the same chap­ter, it says that the Land of Des­o­la­tion is locat­ed next to the Hill Cumorah because of Ether 15:11: Cori­antumr camped next to the Hill Ramah, which it says is the same hill Mor­mon hid up the records.

Alma 63: 4–5 places the land of Des­o­la­tion, Zara­hem­la, Boun­ti­ful, West Sea, and the nar­row neck all with­in the same vicin­i­ty of land Des­o­la­tion or the Hill Cumorah.

Alma 22: 27−28,32 Places Sea West, nar­row strip of wilder­ness, Man­ti, Riv­er Sidon, Zara­hem­la, Fathers’ first inher­i­tance, and the land of Des­o­la­tion again all with­in the same vicin­i­ty of each oth­er. This also means that it would be with­in a dis­tant trav­el of the Hill Cumorah, not a 2500 mile migra­tion.

Ether 9:34, Mosi­ah 18:4, and Alma 22:31 refer to migrat­ing beasts, and a beast that they could sur­vive off of. The vers­es also refer to sea­sons. Cen­tral Amer­i­ca has no migrat­ing land ani­mals and its sea­sons are hot and hot­ter. North Amer­i­ca has migrat­ing Buf­fa­lo which was depen­dent upon the sea­son. There was an esti­mat­ed 60 mil­lion buf­fa­lo at one time that the Amer­i­can Indi­ans used to sus­tain them­selves. The US gov­ern­ment attempt­ed to wipe out the Amer­i­can Indi­ans by killing off the buf­fa­lo.

Book of Mor­mon says that dur­ing cer­tain times of the year there were fre­quent sick­ness and fevers. Amer­i­ca has a sea­son called the flu sea­son known for sick­ness and fevers.

These vers­es prob­a­bly refer to tor­na­dos: 3 Nephi 8:16, 2 Nephi 26:5, 3 Nephi 10:14 .Cen­tral Amer­i­ca does not have tor­na­dos; North Amer­i­ca has an area referred to as tor­na­do alley.

For exam­ple: 3 Nephi 8:16 And there were some who were car­ried away in the whirl­wind; and whith­er they went no man knoweth, save they know that they were car­ried away.

Alma 49:22, Alma 49:18, and Alma 48:8 refer to Nephites using banks of earth to enclose and for­ti­fy their cities. The Great Lakes Indi­an tribes used mounds of dirt to enclose their cities.

Alma 22:32 refers to the nar­row strip of land only tak­ing a day and a half to trav­el. It takes on aver­age three weeks to tra­verse the nar­row­est part of Cen­tral Amer­i­ca from the Pacif­ic and to the Atlantic. It’s a 50 mile strip of land that includes jun­gle and a moun­tain range between the two oceans. On the oth­er hand, the Great Lakes mod­el offers strips of land between the Great Lakes that have suit­able dis­tances for a day and a half trav­el.

One of the largest earth­quakes to ever hit the USA was along the New Madrid Fault along the Mis­sis­sip­pi Riv­er in the 1800’s. Dur­ing this earth­quake that last­ed many hours the Mis­sis­sip­pi Riv­er flowed back­wards, new lakes were made, and some lakes went dry. The New Madrid Fault erupts about every 300 years. Which means that it cor­re­sponds to the time that Christ would have vis­it­ed the North Amer­i­can con­ti­nent.

After spend­ing two years gath­er­ing evi­dence for the Book of Mor­mon, I have spent the last two months on geo­graph­i­cal loca­tions of the Book of Mor­mon. Below is where I believe the major geo­graph­i­cal land­marks men­tioned in the Book of Mor­mon are locat­ed. I’m con­fi­dent that the West Sea, Sea West, East Sea, Sea East, nar­row neck, nar­row pas­sage, Waters of Mor­mon, city of Zara­hem­la, and the bound­ary line between the Land Boun­ti­ful and the Land Des­o­la­tion are labeled cor­rect­ly. I have not had enough time to thor­ough­ly study the oth­er land and their loca­tions, so they are rough esti­ma­tions.

Since I believe the Nephites are the Hopewell Indi­ans and the tribes they trad­ed with, I’m using the Hopewell inter­ac­tion sphere and scrip­tur­al vers­es to place Book of Mor­mon lands. Keep in mind most loca­tions pre­sent­ed are a hur­ried esti­ma­tion. image095.png image096.jpg

Narrow Passage / Narrow Pass

Alma 50:34

34 And it came to pass that they did not head them until they had come to the bor­ders of the land Des­o­la­tion; and there they did head them, by the nar­row pass which led by the sea into the land north­ward, yea, by the sea, on the west (Lake Huron) and on the east (Lake Erie).

Alma 52:9

9 And he also sent orders unto him that he should for­ti­fy the land Boun­ti­ful, and secure the nar­row pass which led into the land north­ward, lest the Laman­ites should obtain that point and should have pow­er to harass them on every side.

Mormon 2:29

29 And the Laman­ites did give unto us the land north­ward, yea, even to the nar­row pas­sage which led into the land south­ward. And we did give unto the Laman­ites all the land south­ward.

Mormon 3:5

5 And it came to pass that I did cause my peo­ple that they should gath­er them­selves togeth­er at the land Des­o­la­tion, to a city which was in the bor­ders, by the nar­row pass which led into the land south­ward.

Narrow Neck

Ether 10:20

20 And they built a great city by the nar­row neck of land, by the place where the sea (Lake Ontario) divides the land.

Alma 63:5

5 And it came to pass that Hagoth, he being an exceed­ing­ly curi­ous man, there­fore he went forth and built him an exceed­ing­ly large ship, on the bor­ders of the land Boun­ti­ful, by the land Des­o­la­tion, and launched it forth into the west sea (Lake Michi­gan), by the nar­row neck which led into the land north­ward.

Alma 50:34

33 There­fore Moroni sent an army, with their camp, to head the peo­ple of Morianton, to stop their flight into the land north­ward. 34 And it came to pass that they did not head them until they had come to the bor­ders of the land Des­o­la­tion; and there they did head them, by the nar­row pass which led by the sea (Lake Ontario) into the land north­ward, yea, by the sea, on the west (Lake Huron) and on the east (Lake Erie).

Alma 22:27

27 And it came to pass that the king sent a procla­ma­tion through­out all the land, amongst all his peo­ple who were in all his land, who were in all the regions round about, which was bor­der­ing even to the sea, on the east (Lake Ontario) and on the west (Lake Michi­gan), and which was divid­ed from the land of Zara­hem­la by a nar­row strip of wilder­ness, which ran from the sea east (Lake Erie) even to the sea west (Lake Huron), and round about on the bor­ders of the seashore, and the bor­ders of the wilder­ness which was on the north by the land of Zara­hem­la, through the bor­ders of Man­ti, by the head of the riv­er Sidon(where Ohio Riv­er and Mis­sis­sip­pi Riv­er meet), run­ning from the east towards the west—and thus were the Laman­ites and the Nephites divid­ed.

Helaman 11:20

20 And thus it did come to pass that the peo­ple of Nephi began to pros­per again in the land, and began to build up their waste places, and began to mul­ti­ply and spread, even until they did cov­er the whole face of the land, both on the north­ward and on the south­ward, from the sea west (Lake Huron) to the sea east (Lake Erie).

Ether 2:13

13 And now I pro­ceed with my record; for behold, it came to pass that the Lord did bring Jared and his brethren forth even to that great sea (Lake Ontario) which divideth the lands. And as they came to the sea they pitched their tents; and they called the name of the place Mori­an­c­umer; and they dwelt in tents, and dwelt in tents upon the seashore for the space of four years.

Alma 50:8

8 And the land of Nephi did run in a straight course from the east sea (Lake Ontario) to the west. 9 And it came to pass that when Moroni had dri­ven all the Laman­ites out of the east wilder­ness, which was north of the lands of their own pos­ses­sions, he caused that the inhab­i­tants who were in the land of Zara­hem­la and in the land round about should go forth into the east wilder­ness, even to the bor­ders by the seashore, and pos­sess the land. 10 And he also placed armies on the south, in the bor­ders of their pos­ses­sions, and caused them to erect for­ti­fi­ca­tions that they might secure their armies and their peo­ple from the hands of their ene­mies. Moroni grabs those on the west and brings them to the area South of lake Ontario. He shores up the Nar­row pass lead­ing to the Land Boun­ti­ful, build­ing for­ti­fi­ca­tions in that area.

Ether 10:20

20 And they built a great city by the nar­row neck of land, by the place where the sea (Lake Ontario) divides the land.

Alma 53:22

22 And now it came to pass that Hela­man did march at the head of his two thou­sand stripling sol­diers, to the sup­port of the peo­ple in the bor­ders of the land on the south by the west sea (Lake Michi­gan).

Helaman 4:7

7 And there they did for­ti­fy against the Laman­ites, from the west sea (Lake Michi­gan), even unto the east; it being a day’s jour­ney for a Nephite, on the line which they had for­ti­fied and sta­tioned their armies to defend their north coun­try.

Alma 50:13

13 And it came to pass that the Nephites began the foun­da­tion of a city, and they called the name of the city Moroni; and it was by the east sea (Lake Ontario); and it was on the south by the line of the pos­ses­sions of the Laman­ites.

Alma 52:11

11 And he also said unto him, I would come unto you, but behold, the Laman­ites are upon us in the bor­ders of the land by the west sea (Lake Michi­gan); and behold, I go against them, there­fore I can­not come unto you.

Alma 53:8

8 And now it came to pass that the armies of the Laman­ites, on the west sea (Lake Michi­gan), south, while in the absence of Moroni on account of some intrigue amongst the Nephites, which caused dis­sen­sions amongst them, had gained some ground over the Nephites, yea, inso­much that they had obtained pos­ses­sion of a num­ber of their cities in that part of the land.

Alma 22:32

32 And now, it was only the dis­tance of a day and a half’s jour­ney for a Nephite, on the line Boun­ti­ful and the land Des­o­la­tion, from the east to the west sea (Lake Michi­gan); and thus the land of Nephi and the land of Zara­hem­la were near­ly sur­round­ed by water, there being a small neck of land between the land north­ward and the land south­ward.

Alma 22:33

33 And it came to pass that the Nephites had inhab­it­ed the land Boun­ti­ful, even from the east unto the west sea (Lake Michi­gan), and thus the Nephites in their wis­dom, with their guards and their armies, had hemmed in the Laman­ites on the south, that there­by they should have no more pos­ses­sion on the north, that they might not over­run the land north­ward.

Alma 63:5

5 And it came to pass that Hagoth, he being an exceed­ing­ly curi­ous man, there­fore he went forth and built him an exceed­ing­ly large ship, on the bor­ders of the land Boun­ti­ful, by the land Des­o­la­tion, and launched it forth into the west sea (Lake Michi­gan), by the nar­row neck which led into the land north­ward.

Alma 52:12

12 Now, the king (Ammoron) had depart­ed out of the land of Zara­hem­la, and had made known unto the queen con­cern­ing the death of his broth­er, and had gath­ered togeth­er a large num­ber of men, and had marched forth against the Nephites on the bor­ders by the west sea (Lake Michi­gan).

Alma 52:13

13 And thus he was endeav­or­ing to harass the Nephites, and to draw away a part of their forces to that part of the land, while he had com­mand­ed those whom he had left to pos­sess the cities which he had tak­en, that they should also harass the Nephites on the bor­ders by the east sea (Lake Ontario), and should take pos­ses­sion of their lands as much as it was in their pow­er, accord­ing to the pow­er of their armies.

Ether 2:7

7 And the Lord would not suf­fer that they should stop beyond the sea in the wilder­ness, but he would that they should come forth even unto the land of promise, which was choice above all oth­er lands, which the Lord God had pre­served for a right­eous peo­ple.

Alma 27:22

22 And it came to pass that the voice of the peo­ple came, say­ing: Behold, we will give up the land of Jer­shon, which is on the east (Prob­a­bly Lake Ontario) by the sea, which joins the land Boun­ti­ful, which is on the south of the land Boun­ti­ful; and this land Jer­shon is the land which we will give unto our brethren for an inher­i­tance.

Alma 50:11

11 And thus he cut off all the strong­holds of the Laman­ites in the east wilder­ness, yea, and also on the west, for­ti­fy­ing the line between the Nephites and the Laman­ites, between the land of Zara­hem­la and the land of Nephi, from the west sea (Lake Michi­gan), run­ning by the head of the riv­er Sidon—the Nephites pos­sess­ing all the land north­ward, yea, even all the land which was north­ward of the land Boun­ti­ful, accord­ing to their plea­sure.

Helaman 3:8

Because this verse is talk­ing about the face of the whole earth I believe the sea west and sea east refers to the pacif­ic and Atlantic ocean 8 And it came to pass that they did mul­ti­ply and spread, and did go forth from the land south­ward to the land north­ward, and did spread inso­much that they began to cov­er the face of the whole earth, from the sea south (Gulf Of Mex­i­co) to the sea north (Lake Supe­ri­or), from the sea west (Pacif­ic Ocean) (Lake Huron) to the sea east (Atlantic Ocean).

Bountiful

Alma 22:31

31 And they came from there up into the south wilder­ness. Thus the land on the north­ward was called Des­o­la­tion, and the land on the south­ward was called Boun­ti­ful, it being the wilder­ness which is filled with all man­ner of wild ani­mals of every kind, a part of which had come from the land north­ward for food.

Alma 22:32

32 And now, it was only the dis­tance of a day and a half’s jour­ney for a Nephite, on the line Boun­ti­ful and the land Des­o­la­tion, from the east to the west sea; and thus the land of Nephi and the land of Zara­hem­la were near­ly sur­round­ed by water, there being a small neck of land between the land north­ward and the land south­ward.

Alma 27:22

22 And it came to pass that the voice of the peo­ple came, say­ing: Behold, we will give up the land of Jer­shon, which is on the east by the sea, which joins the land Boun­ti­ful, which is on the south of the land Boun­ti­ful; and this land Jer­shon is the land which we will give unto our brethren for an inher­i­tance.

Alma 50:11

11 And thus he cut off all the strong­holds of the Laman­ites in the east wilder­ness, yea, and also on the west, for­ti­fy­ing the line between the Nephites and the Laman­ites, between the land of Zara­hem­la and the land of Nephi, from the west sea, run­ning by the head of the riv­er Sidon—the Nephites pos­sess­ing all the land north­ward, yea, even all the land which was north­ward of the land Boun­ti­ful, accord­ing to their plea­sure.

Alma 50:32

32 Now behold, the peo­ple who were in the land Boun­ti­ful, or rather Moroni, feared that they would hear­ken to the words of Morianton and unite with his peo­ple, and thus he would obtain pos­ses­sion of those parts of the land, which would lay a foun­da­tion for seri­ous con­se­quences among the peo­ple of Nephi, yea, which con­se­quences would lead to the over­throw of their lib­er­ty.

Alma 51:28

28 And it came to pass that they marched to the bor­ders of the land Boun­ti­ful, dri­ving the Nephites before them and slay­ing many.

Alma 51:30

30 And it came to pass that he head­ed Amal­ick­i­ah also, as he was march­ing forth with his numer­ous army that he might take pos­ses­sion of the land Boun­ti­ful, and also the land north­ward.

Alma 51:32

32 And it came to pass that they did harass them, inso­much that they did slay them even until it was dark. And it came to pass that Tean­cum and his men did pitch their tents in the bor­ders of the land Boun­ti­ful; and Amal­ick­i­ah did pitch his tents in the bor­ders on the beach by the seashore, and after this man­ner were they dri­ven.

Alma 52:15

15 But behold, it came to pass in the twen­ty and sev­enth year of the reign of the judges, that Tean­cum, by the com­mand of Moroni—who had estab­lished armies to pro­tect the south and the west bor­ders of the land, and had begun his march towards the land Boun­ti­ful, that he might assist Tean­cum with his men in retak­ing the cities which they had lost—

Alma 52:17

17 And it came to pass that Tean­cum made prepa­ra­tions to make an attack upon the city of Mulek, and march forth with his army against the Laman­ites; but he saw that it was impos­si­ble that he could over­pow­er them while they were in their for­ti­fi­ca­tions; there­fore he aban­doned his designs and returned again to the city Boun­ti­ful, to wait for the com­ing of Moroni, that he might receive strength to his army.

Alma 52:18

18 And it came to pass that Moroni did arrive with his army at the land of Boun­ti­ful, in the lat­ter end of the twen­ty and sev­enth year of the reign of the judges over the peo­ple of Nephi.

Alma 52:27

27 And it came to pass that the Laman­ites did pur­sue Tean­cum until they came near the city Boun­ti­ful, and then they were met by Lehi and a small army, which had been left to pro­tect the city Boun­ti­ful.

Alma 52:39

39 But behold, there were many that would not; and those who would not deliv­er up their swords were tak­en and bound, and their weapons of war were tak­en from them, and they were com­pelled to march with their brethren forth into the land Boun­ti­ful.

Alma 53:3

3 And it came to pass that after the Laman­ites had fin­ished bury­ing their dead and also the dead of the Nephites, they were marched back into the land Boun­ti­ful; and Tean­cum, by the orders of Moroni, caused that they should com­mence labor­ing in dig­ging a ditch round about the land, or the city, Boun­ti­ful.

Alma 53:4

4 And he caused that they should build a breast­work of tim­bers upon the inner bank of the ditch; and they cast up dirt out of the ditch against the breast­work of tim­bers; and thus they did cause the Laman­ites to labor until they had encir­cled the city of Boun­ti­ful round about with a strong wall of tim­bers and earth, to an exceed­ing height.

Alma 55:26

26 And it came to pass that when he had for­ti­fied the city Gid, accord­ing to his desires, he caused that his pris­on­ers should be tak­en to the city Boun­ti­ful; and he also guard­ed that city with an exceed­ing­ly strong force.

Alma 63:5

5 And it came to pass that Hagoth, he being an exceed­ing­ly curi­ous man, there­fore he went forth and built him an exceed­ing­ly large ship, on the bor­ders of the land Boun­ti­ful, by the land Des­o­la­tion, and launched it forth into the west sea, by the nar­row neck which led into the land north­ward.

Helaman 1:28

28 But when Moroni­hah had dis­cov­ered this, he imme­di­ate­ly sent forth Lehi with an army round about to head them before they should come to the land Boun­ti­ful.

Helaman 1:29

29 And thus he did; and he did head them before they came to the land Boun­ti­ful, and gave unto them bat­tle, inso­much that they began to retreat back towards the land of Zara­hem­la.

Helaman 4:5

5 And in the fifty and sev­enth year they did come down against the Nephites to bat­tle, and they did com­mence the work of death; yea, inso­much that in the fifty and eighth year of the reign of the judges they suc­ceed­ed in obtain­ing pos­ses­sion of the land of Zara­hem­la; yea, and also all the lands, even unto the land which was near the land Boun­ti­ful.

Helaman 4:6

6 And the Nephites and the armies of Moroni­hah were dri­ven even into the land of Boun­ti­ful;

Helaman 5:14

14 And they did remem­ber his words; and there­fore they went forth, keep­ing the com­mand­ments of God, to teach the word of God among all the peo­ple of Nephi, begin­ning at the city Boun­ti­ful;

Helaman 1:23

23 And now he did not tar­ry in the land of Zara­hem­la, but he did march forth with a large army, even towards the city of Boun­ti­ful; for it was his deter­mi­na­tion to go forth and cut his way through with the sword, that he might obtain the north parts of the land.

3 Nephi 3:23

23 And the land which was appoint­ed was the land of Zara­hem­la, and the land which was between the land Zara­hem­la and the land Boun­ti­ful, yea, to the line which was between the land Boun­ti­ful and the land Des­o­la­tion.

3 Nephi 11:1

1 And now it came to pass that there were a great mul­ti­tude gath­ered togeth­er, of the peo­ple of Nephi, round about the tem­ple which was in the land Boun­ti­ful; and they were mar­veling and won­der­ing one with anoth­er, and were show­ing one to anoth­er the great and mar­velous change which had tak­en place.

Jershon

Alma 27:23

23 And behold, we will set our armies between the land Jer­shon and the land Nephi, that we may pro­tect our brethren in the land Jer­shon; and this we do for our brethren, on account of their fear to take up arms against their brethren lest they should com­mit sin; and this their great fear came because of their sore repen­tance which they had, on account of their many mur­ders and their awful wicked­ness.

Alma 27:22

22 And it came to pass that the voice of the peo­ple came, say­ing: Behold, we will give up the land of Jer­shon, which is on the east by the sea, which joins the land Boun­ti­ful, which is on the south of the land Boun­ti­ful; and this land Jer­shon is the land which we will give unto our brethren for an inher­i­tance.

Alma 27:24

24 And now behold, this will we do unto our brethren, that they may inher­it the land Jer­shon; and we will guard them from their ene­mies with our armies, on con­di­tion that they will give us a por­tion of their sub­stance to assist us that we may main­tain our armies.

Alma 27:26

26 And it came to pass that it did cause great joy among them. And they went down into the land of Jer­shon, and took pos­ses­sion of the land of Jer­shon; and they were called by the Nephites the peo­ple of Ammon; there­fore they were dis­tin­guished by that name ever after.

Alma 28:1

1 And now it came to pass that after the peo­ple of Ammon were estab­lished in the land of Jer­shon, and a church also estab­lished in the land of Jer­shon, and the armies of the Nephites were set round about the land of Jer­shon, yea, in all the bor­ders round about the land of Zara­hem­la; behold the armies of the Laman­ites had fol­lowed their brethren into the wilder­ness.

Alma 28:8

8 And this is the account of Ammon and his brethren, their jour­ney­ings in the land of Nephi, their suf­fer­ings in the land, their sor­rows, and their afflic­tions, and their incom­pre­hen­si­ble joy, and the recep­tion and safe­ty of the brethren in the land of Jer­shon. And now may the Lord, the Redeemer of all men, bless their souls for­ev­er.

Alma 30:1

1 Behold, now it came to pass that after the peo­ple of Ammon were estab­lished in the land of Jer­shon, yea, and also after the Laman­ites were dri­ven out of the land, and their dead were buried by the peo­ple of the land—

Alma 30:19

19 Now this man went over to the land of Jer­shon also, to preach these things among the peo­ple of Ammon, who were once the peo­ple of the Laman­ites.

Alma 31:3

3 Now the Zoramites had gath­ered them­selves togeth­er in a land which they called Antion­um, which was east of the land of Zara­hem­la, which lay near­ly bor­der­ing upon the seashore, which was south of the land of Jer­shon, which also bor­dered upon the wilder­ness south, which wilder­ness was full of the Laman­ites.

Alma 35:1

1 Now it came to pass that after Amulek had made an end of these words, they with­drew them­selves from the mul­ti­tude and came over into the land of Jer­shon.

Alma 35:2

2 Yea, and the rest of the brethren, after they had preached the word unto the Zoramites, also came over into the land of Jer­shon.

Alma 35:6

6 And it came to pass that after they had found out the minds of all the peo­ple, those who were in favor of the words which had been spo­ken by Alma and his brethren were cast out of the land; and they were many; and they came over also into the land of Jer­shon.

Alma 35:8

8 Now the peo­ple of the Zoramites were angry with the peo­ple of Ammon who were in Jer­shon, and the chief ruler of the Zoramites, being a very wicked man, sent over unto the peo­ple of Ammon desir­ing them that they should cast out of their land all those who came over from them into their land.

Alma 35:13

13 And the peo­ple of Ammon depart­ed out of the land of Jer­shon, and came over into the land of Melek, and gave place in the land of Jer­shon for the armies of the Nephites, that they might con­tend with the armies of the Laman­ites and the armies of the Zoramites; and thus com­menced a war betwixt the Laman­ites and the Nephites, in the eigh­teenth year of the reign of the judges; and an account shall be giv­en of their wars here­after.

Alma 35:14

14 And Alma, and Ammon, and their brethren, and also the two sons of Alma returned to the land of Zara­hem­la, after hav­ing been instru­ments in the hands of God of bring­ing many of the Zoramites to repen­tance; and as many as were brought to repen­tance were dri­ven out of their land; but they have lands for their inher­i­tance in the land of Jer­shon, and they have tak­en up arms to defend them­selves, and their wives, and chil­dren, and their lands.

Alma 43:4

4 For behold, it came to pass that the Zoramites became Laman­ites; there­fore, in the com­mence­ment of the eigh­teenth year the peo­ple of the Nephites saw that the Laman­ites were com­ing upon them; there­fore they made prepa­ra­tions for war; yea, they gath­ered togeth­er their armies in the land of Jer­shon.

Alma 43:15
