Recolonization of the Land of Nephi
Zeniff’s son Noah inherits the throne.
Noah abuses his monarchial authority by imposing a heavy tax on the people and spending it mostly on his own pleasures and luxuries.
Amid his government spending spree, Noah builds towers and other such military strongholds.
The Lamanites initiate an attack on the people.
Noah deploys his army, and is successful in defeating the Lamanites.
Their victory is a great source of pride and boasting.
