The Nephites Took Possession

Alan C. Miner

Here in Mormon 4:8 we find that the Nephites "took possession again of the city of Desolation. We are reminded, with this Nephite retaking of the city of Desolation, that the Nephite-Lamanite series of final battles did not move steadily northward, especially in these years of battle over the city Desolation.
