Nephite Refuge (Malay geography model)

Location for Nephite centralization

Nephite Refuge (Malay geography model)

Giddianhi presents Lachoneus with an ultimatum: join the Gadianton forces, or die. Refusing to merge with the Gadianton group, Lachoneus prepares his people for the imminent attack by ordering all his subjects to gather and centralize in one location: the Nephite refuge, which reportedly is between Zarahemla and Bountiful. The people all gather, and leave the rest of the land barren. When the Gadianton forces arrive, there is nothing to pillage, and the Nephites have all concentrated their defenses into their refuge, which the Gadiantons dare not attack.
