A NEW MODEL FOR
BOOK OF MORMON GEOGRAPHY
By James Lee Warr
Criteria for the city of Teancum.
It was near the city of Desolation (Morm. 4:3).
It was located near the seashore (Morm. 4:3).
It was near the city of Boaz (Morm. 4:20).
The Nephites retreated northward to Teancum following their loss of the city of Desolation (Morm. 4:3).
This city was probably to the north of the city of Desolation. It was likely founded by a man named Teancum, possibly the warrior of Book of Mormon fame. It was located on the seashore and was probably to the south of the city of Boaz. I have tentatively identified this city with the ancient site of San Jorge located east of Rivas on the shore of Lake Nicaragua.
