Relocation to Manti
Zarahemla’s Age of War
Seeing they are no match for the Nephites, the Lamanites retreat, and begin a march around the south end of the land of Zarahemla to Manti.
As they begin their retreat, Moroni not only dispatches spies to track their course, but also consults the prophet Alma, who warns them to fortify the land of Manti.
Moroni leaves some troops in Jershon, and takes the rest of his army down to Manti, recruiting local soldiers on the way.
Moroni establishes his military presence on the west bank of the river Sidon in the land of Manti, and strategically places spies to watch for the Lamanites.
Moroni knows that his military actions are justified by the causes he is fighting for and against.
Moroni divides the army, takes one part to eastern sector near the hill Riplah, and sends the other part to the western side of the valley.
