Pursued by a blood-thirsty hoard, abandoned by their king, Noah, and many of their men, without weapons and without hope, a group of Nephite maidens stopped their retreat and turned to face their attackers. Turning against the tide of horrified citizens, these daughters had to face an army, slaughtering men women and children, as they advanced straight toward them. If they failed all those they loved would die. They had to stand forth.
And it worked. The Lamanites were charmed by their beauty and the slaughter stopped. The people were put in captivity, but they were alive thanks to the courage of their daughters.
