“Don’t Fire Until You See…”

The Bunker Hill Monument

The first monument that commemorated the Battle of Bunker Hill was an 18-foot wooden pillar with a gilt urn erected in 1794. Today, a 221-foot granite obelisk marks the site of the first major battle of the American Revolution. This battle showed the British that even though they had faced a newly-formed and inexperienced colonial army, the Americans were still quite capable of inflicting heavy casualties! Come and admire this testament to American freedom!
