Cumorah (384 AD)

❮ Home

Mormon writes a letter to the Lamanite king suggesting that the two armies meet in battle near the hill Cumorah—the Lamanite king agrees. Mormon, now 74 years old, gathers all his people to the land of Cumorah, where he hopes he can gain an advantage over the Lamanites. Mormon gathers the Nephite records, creates new golden plates, and on them abridges the history of his people. Having done this, he buries all the old Nephite records in the hill Cumorah, but keeps his own gold plates to give to his son Moroni.
