A Provocative Image of Bunker Hill and Burning of Charlestown from 1775

A fine engraving of the showing the bombardment of Charlestown and Bunker Hill from Boston.

The view was published in Barnard's New Complete & Authentic History of England. The image is the artist's interpretation of the event, from a British point of view, published for a British audience.

The Battle of Bunker's Hill, actually conducted at Breed's Hill, resulted in a dearly-fought British victory. Despite losing the battle, and thus control of Boston to the British, the campaign was seen as the first step towards American independence.
