Moroni visited Joseph Smith on September 21, 1923, and commenced the restoration of the gospel. From this restoration came many things that shocked the world: the visitation of angels, revelation, modern day prophets, and records kept on gold plates and buried in stone boxes. The author lists examples of metal plates and stone boxes as containers for them that have been found.
