Where is Mormon's Wall located?

    The Narrow neck divided the land northward from the land southward (Alma 22:32).

      During most of the Book of Mormon story (up through 3 Nephi) almost everything takes place south of the narrow neck.  The Jaredite story (The Book of Ether) was set almost entirely north of the narrow neck.

     After Christ came and for the rest of the Book of Mormon story, the land north of this pass became densely populated
(IV Nephi 1:23), and Mormon spent almost his entire life north of the narrow pass and a large part of his military career defending this area around the narrow neck.
     At one of the battles at Mormon's barrier, The bodies of the dead were thrown into the sea.  There is a large inlet/river near the southwest corner and along the front of the structure which is probably where the bodies were thrown (Mormon 3:8).  This means they considered this inlet as "the sea".   The tides on the Pacific coast can be 17 feet and routinely reach inland to this area.

    Measuring from that the southwest corner of the structure to the east sea is about 38 miles
(a day and a half walk for a Nephite (Alma 22:32)).
    Notice also "where the sea divides the land" (Ether 10:20) that this inlet comes across nearly one half of the width of the Pamananian land mass.
