Zarahemla’s Age of War
The new Lamanite King, Tubaloth (Ammoron’s son), appoints a man named Coriantumr to lead the Lamanite military.
Coriantumr gathers and equips an enormous army, and marches towards Zarahemla.
Because of the recent political troubles among the Nephites, Zarahemla is poorly guarded.
Coriantumr’s army storms Zarahemla with surprising speed, killing anyone in their way; Pacumeni tries to escape, but Coriantumr kills him first.
Once Coriantumr realizes he is in total control of Zarahemla, he decides to expand his siege by invading the city of Bountiful.
Moronihah hadn’t fortified Zarahemla very much, thinking that the Lamanites wouldn’t dare invade the capital city.
Moronihah sends troops to ambush Coriantumr as he approaches Bountiful; Coriantumr begins to retreat back to Zarahemla, but Moronihah is waiting with more troops.
An awful battle breaks out, in which Coriantumr dies.
The surviving Lamanites, finding themselves surrounded by Nephites, surrender, and they are sent back to the land of Nephi. Zarahemla is regained by the Nephites.
