People of Nephihah

The residents of Nephihah welcome refugees from other cities after Nephi­hah was the first city retaken during the final campaign of Moroni and Pahoran1. Although Moroni desired to fight the Lamanites upon the nearby plains of Nephihah, their refusal prompted a strategic night assault. Moroni ’s army recovered Nephihah by climbing the walls on the west side of the city while the Lamanite army slept on the east side and then attacking their startled and frightened enemy from within. Not one Nephite soldier was killed in this action, although Lamanite casualties were high. Many of the Lamanite captives chose to enter a covenant of peace rather than remain prisoners.
