Interested in the Battle of Bunker Hill?

The Battle of Bunker Hill actually took place on Breed's Hill, which was slightly closer to Boston than Bunker Hill. The battle itself became known as the Battle at Bunker Hill, but is also called the Battle at Breed's Hill. The invading British wore thick winter uniforms in the June heat, and had to deal with lots of mud which made walking with their heavy boots difficult. The British won this particular battle, driving the colonial army away. The British did not take the colonial army seriously, thinking that they were not well trained.

The American Revolution started with the Battle at Lexington in April of 1775, was fought at Bunker Hill in June of 1775, and continued until October 1781, with the final battle taking place in Yorktown.
