Dear 100 Hour Board,

Is the hill Cumorah where the Nephites and Lamanites fought their great last battle the same as Joseph Smith's Hill Cumorah?

A: Dear The Bone Collector-

There is no authoritative statement on the subject. My speculation is that it almost certainly is not. Moroni seemed to have cleared out of the area of his Cumorah, and may have traveled hundreds or thousands of miles in the period between the battle and completing his writing.
