I had several ancestors at the Battle of Bunker Hill--on the revolutionary side. You? ... See MoreSee Less

On June 17, 1775 - The British took Bunker Hill outside of Boston. The Battle of Bunker Hill was a battle fought on June 17, 1775, during the Siege of Boston in the early stages of the American Revolutionary War. The battle is named after Bunker Hill in Charlestown, Boston, which was peripherally involved in the battle, and was the original objective of both the colonial and British troops, though the vast majority of combat took place on the adjacent Breed's Hill. The result was a victory for the British but the massive losses they encountered discouraged them from any further sorties against the siege lines; 226 men were killed with over 800 wounded, including a large number of officer. The following is an engraving by James Mitan published 1808.
