Abstract

This article contains two works, both based on an article by Alice le Plongeon who argues that there is a connection between ancient Americans and ancient Egyptians, the latter originating from ancient America: “New Light Upon the Prophets Divinity” by R. W. Young, which proposes that America is the “old world” where Adam and Eve resided; and “Evidence In Support of The Book of Mormon” by Martin W. Roylance, which adds that the connection between these ancient peoples is explained by the Book of Mormon. He identifies Valparaiso, Chile, as the landing place for the Jaredites.
