Battle of Boaz
Nephite Decline and Downfall
After a decade of peace, the Lamanites gather a gargantuan army, advance towards the northern land, and begin to wipe out the Nephites.
The Lamanites march to Desolation, where a terrible battle ensues; the Nephites are driven out of Desolation, and retreat to a city called Boaz, where despite Lamanite attacks, they are successful in holding their ground.
The Lamanites make a second strike on Boaz, where they overtake the Nephites, and again sacrifice women and children to idols.
Mormon, now 65 years old and seeing that the Nephite nation is on the brink of collapse, goes to the hill Shim, where he takes all the Nephite records.
