“Ammoron Gathered Together a Large Number of Men”

Brant Gardner

This second attack point was the result of Ammoron’s understanding of the position of the Lamanites in the first attack. He knew from having been there that they had a strong foothold in Nephite territory. It is unlikely that he left without an accompanying force. To that force he undoubtedly added more men, and then made the attack on the western areas of the Nephite holdings.
