Moriantum (Internal geography model)

Nephite locale. In a letter to his son Moroni, written just prior to the final destruction of the Nephite nation, Mormon described in horrific detail the depravity of some Nephites in Moriantum. They captured many Lamanite women, sexually assaulted them, ­tortured them to death, and then devoured their flesh “for a token of bravery. ” Mormon denounced their acts and lamented the state of his people.
