According to the Book of Mormon, Aha (/ˈ.hɑː/[1]) was a Nephite soldier who lived in the 1st century BC in the Americas. His father was Zoram, a "chief captain" of the Nephite armies. Sometime between 81 BC. and 78 BC, Aha accompanied his father and his brother to battle against the Lamanites in order to rescue prisoners of war that were captured during the destruction of the city of Ammonihah.[2] Under inspired direction by the prophet Alma, their army met the Lamanite army after crossing the River Sidon, and defeated them. All of the prisoners were rescued, with the narrative stating that "there was not one soul of them had been lost that were taken captive".[3]
