Hill Cumorah

Meeting place for battle, record depository; also known as Hill Ramah

Having completed his abridgment of Nephite history, Mormon hides his source materials in the hill Cumorah before giving his record to Moroni. Here the climactic battle between the Lamanites and Nephites ensues, where approximately 250,000 Nephites die. Centuries earlier, the last battle of the Jaredites took place near the same hill. The hill Ramah was the same hill that the Nephites called ­Cumorah.
