Continued Nephite Defense and Prosperity
Zarahemla’s Age of War
Moroni continues fortification operations by building more ridges and ditches around the cities, only this time he improves the design by adding a tall wooden structure topped with pickets on the dirt ridges.
Moroni then places towers at strategic points throughout the fortification to serve as a first line of defense for the cities.
Moroni then leads his armies to the east wilderness, where they drive out all the Lamanites and send them back the land of Nephi.
Moroni orders Nephites to settle the eastern territory and to fortify the southern region.
Moroni thus gains stable control of the entire land north of their southern border, near the head of the Sidon river; he continues to add strength to his military forces.
Moroni develops the eastern front of the Nephite territory by establishing the cities of Moroni, Nephihah, and others.
The Lord keeps his promise and blesses the Nephites, who enjoy peace and and prosperity.
Falling into sin has been the cause of the Nephites’ problems, but those who stayed in compliance with God’s commandments are spared.
The Nephites enjoy a time of great happiness under the direction of Nephi.
