The writers, the men who had the sacred records and handed them down from generation to generation lived near the Hill Cumorah. This is why scholars who hold fast to the Mesoamerica theory were forced to invent a second Hill Cumorah. The invention of a second Hill Cumorah creates far more questions than it answers. The history and standard works of the church, along with the landmarks near the Hill Cumorah, offer proof positive that the Hill Cumorah in New York State was and is the Cumorah of the Book of Mormon. Nephi saw the land into which they were to come. That land is now known as the United States of America. When Christ came to the Americas he was less than 100 miles west of Cumorah when he called it this land. Isaiah and Micah described the land of Zion: the land they described is the United States of America. The Doctrine and Covenants tells where Zion will be. It is not Mesoamerica. The Geography of the Book of Mormon was not important to the author until the Ensignprinted an article suggesting there were two hills names Cumorah. That suggestion caused the author to become engrossed in the geography of the Book of Mormon. The author had never been able to believe a loving God would promise Nephi North America and land him thousands of miles from that land, or that the Nephites could have lived in Mesoamerica and died in New York State. Rather than looking to the works of man, the author searched the history and standard works of the church. To this was added the landmarks near and to the west of the Hill Cumorah as the source of information. All questions were answered and each confusing passage become clear. All the landmarks in the area prove the Hill Cumorah in New York is the Hill Cumorah of the Book of Mormon.
