“Therefore I made this record out of the plates of Nephi, and hid up in the hill Cumorah all the records which had been entrusted to me by the hand of the Lord, save it were these few plates which I gave unto my son Moroni.” Mormon 6:6

The Book of Mormon describes the final battle place between the Nephites and Lamanites as the land and hill Cumorah.

While it has been commonly believed that the hill in New York where Joseph Smith received the gold plates is the same Hill Cumorah described in the Book of Mormon, this identification has been questioned.
