“They Had Many Battles with the Nephites”

Alan C. Miner

After the destruction of Ammonihah, we find mention of "many battles," in the which the Lamanites were "driven and slain" (Alma 25:3). In the parallel account of the attack on Ammonihah in Alma 16, there is no mention of "many battles" previous to the confrontation in the south wilderness on the east of the Sidon river (Alma 16:6-8). Therefore, one might wonder about the chronology and location of these "many battles." [Alan C. Miner, Personal Notes]
