Sidon River (Internal geography model)

A prominent river in Nephite ­territory originating in the vicinity of the south wilderness and the land of Manti. The Sidon apparently flowed north to the sea, passing just east of the city of Zarahemla. The river is mentioned most frequently as a landmark and strategic site in military confrontations among Nephites, Amlicites, and Lamanites. The “waters of Sidon” are mentioned at least once in a more peaceful context as the site of many baptisms.
