Bunker Hill: A City, a Siege, a Revolution
With his keen sense of the unexplored side of mythic events in U.S. history, Nathaniel Philbrick turns his prodigious talents to pre-Revolutionary Boston and the spark that ignited the American Revolution. In the aftermath of the Boston Tea Party and the violence of Lexington and Concord, Boston in 1775 is cut off from supplies by a British blockade. As the conflict escalates. skirmishes give way to outright war in the Battle of Bunker Hill. It would be the bloodiest conflict of the revolutionary war, and the point of no return for the rebellious colonists. Philbrick brings a fresh perspective to every aspect of the story and its dynamic personalities, including John Adams, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Paul Revere, George Washington, and Joseph Warren. With passion and insight, he reconstructs the revolutionary landscape -- geographic and ideological -- in a mesmerizing narrative of the robust, messy, blisteringly real origins of America.
