On June 16, 1775, the colonial militia in Boston received word that British soldiers, who were stationed in Boston, planned to place troops in the surrounding countryside of the Charlestown peninsula, which would give them even greater control over Boston Harbor. The militia stole to the peninsula at night, built a small redoubt, and were ready for battle when the British soldiers awoke the next morning. Bunker Hill Monument commemorates the Battle of Bunker Hill, one of the first battles of the Revolutionary War.
