Aha

Following the ministry of Alma and Amulek in the wicked city of Ammonihah, the Lamanites attacked and destroyed the city in the year 81 BC in fulfillment of prophecy. Some citizens were taken captive by the Lamanites and led into the wilderness. The chief captain over the Nephite armies at the time was a man named Zoram, who had two sons, Aha and Lehi. Zoram inquired of the high priest, Alma the Younger, where he should take his forces to recover the captives. Alma received directions from the Lord, and Zoram took his two sons and marched forth to engage the Lamanites. “And they came upon the armies of the Lamanites, and the Lamanites were scattered and driven into the wilderness; and they took their brethren who had been taken captive by the Lamanites, and there was not one soul of them had been lost that were taken captive. And they were brought by their brethren to possess their own lands”.
