New England's Road to Revolution

Photo #1 - But Officers, I, I, I, I, swear in the King's name, I can explain everything. I had nothing to do with the looting and setting houses on fire. Its those colonial rebels trying to make us look bad again. Photo #2 - Here we go, Jim's got himself in trouble again. I'd better go find some bail money.

The Breed's Hill Institute

June 17, 1775
Battle of Breed’s Hill (Bunker Hill) began
British General William Howe landed his troops on the Charlestown Peninsula overlooking Boston, Massachusetts, and lead them against Breed's Hill, a fortified American position just beside Bunker Hill. Although the battle ended with the British taking the ground, the Americans managed to turn back the British soldiers twice. The number of British soldiers and officers lost made it a Pyrrhic victory at best. For American Patriots it demonstrated that they could be an effective force against the British. If the battle had been an overwhelming British victory the Revolution might never have proceeded any farther.
