Strike and Ambush
Zarahemla’s Age of War
The Lamanites draw near, pass the troops led by Moroni, who were hiding near hill Riplah, and meet the other part of the Nephite army, led by a general named Lehi.
A bloody strike ensues, in which the well–armored Nephites, led by Lehi fall at a much lower rate than the Lamanites.
The Lamanites, noticing that they are no match for the Nephites, retreat back the way they came from.
The troops led by Moroni ambush the Lamanites on their way out, and an even more violent battle erupts.
The Lamanites are inspired to fight ferociously by the Zoramite and Amalekite dissenters, while the Nephites are driven by the need to preserve their God–given liberties.
As the Nephites become anxious over the extreme ferocity of the Lamanites, Moroni rallies them with a call to remember their freedoms—the Nephites then gain an edge over the Lamanites.
Desipte the Lamanites outnumbering the Nephites, the Lamanites are driven back in one group, and to their horror, find themselves cornered between Lehi’s troops and Moroni’s troops in the Sidon valley.
