Problems

It came to pass occurs in the Bible. The Late War states a strong ship while the Book of Mormon just says ship. The location in the Late War mentions the that it was unknown to the children of Israel and the direction is southward. In the Book of Mormon it does not contain reference to the Children of Israel and the people travel northward. Another very specious connection.
