I've visited Circleville, Ohio, where they initially built the city with the earthworks in mind but later changed them. The drawing below was made in 1836.
In 1834, Joseph Smith led Zion's Camp through Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, which he described as "the plains of the Nephites."
They did not pass through Circleville, but when they were about 55 miles west of Circleville, they encountered a large mound in Enon, Ohio. I've visited that site. This is where Joseph related the account I added later in this post.
