“A plan of the action at Bunker's Hill, on the 17th. of June, 1775, between His Majesty’s troops under the command of Major General Howe, and the rebel forces, by Lieut. Page of the Engineers, who acted as Aide de Campe to General Howe in that Action”. This is Frothingham’s edition of William Faden’s important Revolutionary War battle plan of Bunker Hill. Faden’s plan is one of the earliest and most famous of his American Revolution battle maps. The plan captures the action in and around the American fortifications at Breed’s Hill and Bunker Hill, the most famous of all early battles of the American Revolution. More than 2,000 British troops under the command of General Thomas Gage stormed Breed’s Hill, occupied by colonial soldiers. It took four charges before the British took the hill from the rebels. The victory came at a great price with more than 1,000 casualties during their attacks on Breed’s Hill. The British seized offensive operations on rebel strongholds in Boston.
