Unit 2: Revolution

  • Battle of Bunker Hill

    The battle is named after the adjacent Bunker Hill, which was peripherally involved in the battle and was the original objective of both colonial and British troops, and is occasionally referred to as the "Battle of Breed's Hill." When the British were alerted to the presence of the new position the next day, they mounted an attack against them. There were over 800 people wounded and 226 people killed, including a notably large number of officers.
