Lamanite Forces Divide to the East and West
Zarahemla’s Age of War
The next morning, the Lamanites find Amalickiah dead in his tent, and knowing that Teancum is coming with his army to resume the battle, the Lamanites retreat to the city Mulek.
Amalickiah had a brother named Ammoron, who, following Amalickiah’s death, takes charge of the army, and orders that all territories that had been invaded should remain occupied.
Seeing the determination and strength of the Lamanite armies, Teancum chooses not to try to invade the occupied territory; rather, he maintains the borders and continues to prepare his army as he waits for reinforcements from Moroni.
Moroni send orders that all prisoners of war to be kept, and gives the command to fortify the land of Bountiful and the narrow pass leading to the land northward.
Moroni instructs Teancum to use every opportunity he can to regain the cities that have been invaded.
Ammoron goes back to the land of Nephi and tells the queen about Amalickiah’s death.
Next, he then gathers up a large number of soldiers and begins a march towards the southwestern region of Nephite territory.
