According to The Book of Mormon, the plains of Agosh (/ˈ.ɡɑːʃ/[1]) were the site of a battle during Jaredite times.

We learn of Agosh in only two verses in The Book of Mormon, Ether 14:15-16, when Coriantumr and all the people who followed him, retreated to these plains before facing their enemies, led by Lib. Coriantumr killed Lib in battle, but Lib's brother took command of the army and Coriantumr again fled.
