“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.” (Wikipedia)
