“Took Possession Again of the City Desolation”

Brant Gardner

Chronological: the three hundred and sixty fourth year would be 354 A.D. In the course of 1 years worth of seasonal war, the Nephites have attempted an advance (in Mormon 4:1) and have been defeated. They have lost their first city of defense, Desolation, and now the battle begins for their second city of retreat.
