Boaz (Heartland geography model)

Nephite retreat and battle ground

Boaz (Heartland geography model)

After the Nephites, including Mormon, are soundly defeated by the Lamanites in Desolation, they retreat to the city of Boaz.  Here they are able to fend off an initial Lamanite strike. However, when the Lamanites come a second time, the Nephites are driven out and killed; even women and children are sacrificed to idols.  After fleeing Boaz, Mormon makes his way to the hill Shim, in the land of Antum, following the directions left by Ammaron.
