Abstract

Warfare was a constant reality for the Nephites from very early on, and the archaeological record of Mesoamerica is consistent with that picture. Evidence suggests that shifts in the nature of warfare in Mesoamerica occurred around the fourth century BC, and Nephites had to respond to those changes with new fortifications and weapons. Just as the Nephites had to keep up with the latest in military technology, Latter-day Saints can best fortify their faith by keeping up on the latest information and utilizing the best online resources.
