Ammoron Commanded That His People Maintain Those Cities, Which Had Been Taken by the Shedding of Blood

George Reynolds, Janne M. Sjodahl

Not to be in any way deprived of the fruits of their victory, Ammoron ordered the captains serving under him to keep possession of all the cities they had captured during the bloody battles through which they had suffered so great hardships. For the Nephites had fought the Lamanites with great fury, and had inflicted severe punishment upon them.
