Bunker Hill, Boston Photos

On June 17, 1775, American revolutionary patriots who had set up hasty fortifications on Breed's Hill & Bunker Hill faced three charges by British regulars. While the Americans had to withdraw when they ran low of ammunition, the British lost 1,000 dead to 400 American casualties. Thus, the battle was celebrated as the first American victory & a granite obelisk (221ft) was erected in 1842 on Breed's Hill.
