Additional Lamanite Attacks and Holocaust
Nephite Decline and Downfall
In Mormon’s 54th year, the Lamanites attack the city of Teancum, but the Nephites are able to hold their ground, advance upon the Lamanites, and even regain Desolation.
Two years later, the Lamanites strike back on the Nephites, and an indescribably horrific battle ensues, all while both the Lamanites and Nephites wallow in wickedness.
The Lamanites obtain the edge over the Nephites, conquer Desolation, and advance upon Teancum, where they take prisoners, and sacrifice the women and children to idols.
Mormon writes a letter to his son Moroni, telling him about the terrible conquest of the Lamanites, the degeneracy of both people, and prays for the grace of God.
The Nephites, furious that their women and children had been sacrificed, attack the Lamanites, and successfully drive them out Nephite lands.
