Civil War in Zarahemla
Zarahemla’s Age of War
Meanwhile, back in central Zarahemla, king–men insurgents begin rebelling against Pahoran and the freemen.
Pahoran is unable to curb the coup, and is forced to escape to the land of Gideon with his supporters.
Pahoran sends a distress message throughout the land as the insurgents take control of Zarahemla and form an alliance with the Lamanites.
Pahoran receives a letter from Moroni in which Moroni (unaware of the political revolt in Zarahemla) reproves Pahoran harshly for not supporting the troops at war.
Pahoran sends provisions to the troops in the field; he intends to send more once Zarahemla is regained.
Pahoran sends a response to Moroni explaining himself and requesting help.
Moroni Returns from the Eastern Front
Moroni and his troops storm Zarahemla, overthrow Pachus, the leader of the insurgents; the remainder are given fair trial, and those who refuse to change their allegiance are executed.
Pahoran resumes his tenure as chief judge without opposition, and Moroni sends additional troops and provisions to Helaman.
