Abstract

Roberts details how Captain Moroni both spiritually and physically fortified his people for the potential future conflicts with the Lamanites. The reversal of the Lamanites in trying to take the cities of Ammonihah and Noah is detailed. Roberts spends time discussing the physical characteristics of Moroni’s fortifications and speculates that fortifications in Ohio built centuries later may have taken inspiration from them.
