Bunker Hill Monument

Recommendation by Lemi

With the Revolutionary War underway, Boston saw its first battle. The Battle of Bunker Hill was one that set the tone for the entire war. The patriots were severely out of an advantage, running out of ammo, but still put up a worthy fight against the British troops. Far less Americans died that day, but their valiant service is still immortalized in a piercing granite monument. The Bunker Hill Monument lies in the middle of a lush, green park. For a little more realism, head to the Bunker Hill Museum right across the street to see artifacts from the war up close. Then, take your time here and contemplate that fateful day.
