TRUTH !!
On the evening of June 16, 1775, Colonel William Prescott, leading 1,200 Massachusetts and Connecticut soldiers, left Cambridge to fortify Bunker's Hill, the dominant hill in Charlestown.
Prescott, however, bypassed this position and instead dug in on a lower hill closer to Boston called Breed's Hill.
The next morning, the British awoke to find Breed's Hill fortified with an earthen redoubt measuring 160 feet by 30 feet.
British General Gage ordered the position captured, and by 5:30 PM that day, it was, but at a terrible price....
Size of the armies: 2,400 British troops against 1,500 Americans.
The British suffered some 1,150 killed and wounded or nearly half of the force engaged. The American casualties were estimated at 450 killed and wounded.
