The American Crisis,
12th September 1777
Battle of Bunker Hill
The first major battle of the
American Revolution was fought on the heights overlooking Boston
Harbor at Breed’s and Bunker hills on 17th
June 1775. From fortified positions, the Americans repulsed two
British charges. On the third charge, the Americans ran out of
gunpowder and were driven from their positions.
Joseph Warren was a famous physician and patriot who had
volunteered to fight as a private.
John Trumbull witnessed the assault that resulted in
Warren’s death from his post four miles away at Roxbury.
This painting was his first Revolutionary canvass to
glorify the war’s first great battle.
